Wray Castle

The company was commissioned by Historic Property Restoration Limited (HPR) which, itself, was commissioned by The National Trust, owners of the magnificent property, in conjunction with the architect to improve & protect the external fabric of the castle.

Objectives:

  • To refurbish the external roof areas to the castle particularly focusing on areas of water ingress, various parapets & stone projections
  • To replace and update the lead on the roof of the roof of the castle and encapsulating the stone slate, so that it complemented the fabric of the building
  • To replace the roofing on the castle’s Grade II listed boathouse, situated north of the castle, where the metal sheet roofing was replaced and matched on a like for like basis
  • To ensure that work undertaken matches its replacement on a like for like basis
  • That the historic value of the castle remains intact

Customer Feedback:

  • The project was undertaken through the autumn & winter periods, which had obvious weather related constraints on the installation, however this was taken on board & the project was delivered to a very high standard.
  • A regular blog was maintained by the National Trust detailing the on-going activities on site & chronicling the project at Wray Castle
