Project: Walton Conservatory Range

Client: Warrington Borough Council

We were appointed by Warrington Borough Council to provide Clerk of Works services at Walton Hall and Gardens, to restore and revitalise the existing conservatory, glasshouses and shippon building – transforming the site into a community hub providing educational, retail, office and workshop space.

The brickwork was generally in very good condition, with more than 90% of the bricks on site today originally dating from 1899-1910. The walls were dismantled brick by brick, cleaned, assessed for damage and rebuilt. The original lime mortar was analysed and a similar lime mortar used, to allow any moisture to leave the walls through the mortar rather than damaging the bricks.
