Restoration & Conservation
Work was carried out on this 12th century castle, over a two year period. This was a very complex project which required a wide variety of jobs. We completed a full restoration to achieve this stunning end result.
We totally restored one of the only remaining towers, which over the years had become a ruin. Inside, although the vaulted ceiling and stonework was almost in tact; it was certainly in need of a clean up, re-point and a few replacement Ashlar. The outside was in poor shape, the whole exterior needed taking back to a suitable depth so that a solid cladding of rubble stonework could provide strength and preservation. Due to the fact the ceiling had nothing but collapsed rubble weighing down on it,all the Ashlar had to be laid from above, lowered in using a block and chain.
