The Forbury

Later this month we will be commencing work at The Forbury, in Reading. St Laurence churchyard wall has been propped with scaffolding to prevent collapse, for some thirty years. Heritage Lottery funding is providing the resources to carry out the restoration and English Heritage have been overseeing the specification for the works, to ensure the historic integrity of the wall is preserved.



Garrick's Villa
We are working on an apartment in Garrick’s Villa on Hampton Court Road. Steeped in history, this Grade I listed country house dates back to the Middle Ages and has been remodelled and extended through the ages, most notably by Robert Adam in the 1700’s. Tragically, the building was ravaged by a fire in 2008, so many of the original features were destroyed. It has taken years to settle the insurance claims and so at last the rooms are gradually being restored. The work involves a complete refit, including new electrics, heating, kitchen and bathroom but we are doing all we can to reinstate using traditional materials such as lime plaster. We’re restoring the missing and damaged Adams cornices by taking mouldings from the sections that remain intact and the Adams fireplace has been sent to a specialist for professional restoration.
