Elvaston Castle Coach House Derbyshire

Managed by Derbyshire County Council, Elvaston Castle is a Grade II* listed country house. It forms the centrepiece of a 350 acre estate that also includes 16 Grade II buildings and a Grade II* registered Park and Garden.

Project Summary

Extensive roof repairs and stabilization are underway, following the collapse of an internal dormer in 2016 of this 15th Century moated manor house.

Messenger was awarded the contract for stripping and overhauling the existing Westmoreland slate roofs, including all gutter linings and rainwater goods, and the taking down and rebuilding of the Clock Tower, belfry and refurbishment of the clock mechanism.

General repairs are being undertaken to the elevations, involving masonry repairs and repointing where necessary, and the refurbishment of all windows and doors. Improvements to the building’s thermal efficiency through the provision of new insulation are being made also.

Alterations are being made to make the building more accessible and marketable, including lowering the level of the floor above the stables and the provision of a new external metal staircase to facilitate access and escape.
