Newnham Park estate Coping

We have for the last few months been carrying out repairs to a Grade II listed garden wall in the grounds of Newnham Park Estate in Plympton, Plymouth. One section of the wall had collapsed whilst another section had to be taken down as it was on the point of collapse and deemed to be too dangerous in its present state. Now that both sections of wall have been rebuilt, we have almost finished laying a new slate coping on top of its entire length.

In the next few days the work should be completely finished after which we will post a link to our main website showing you what was carried out.


Starting Streamside

We have just recently laid foundations in preparation for a large extension to ‘Streamside’, a little barn situated in the small isolated hamlet of Middlewood in Cornwall. We have also built the blockwork up to floor level and cast the concrete floor slab. The design detail for this is going to be timber frame so currently we are off site whilst the carpenters erect all the timber work and get the roof in place. Once they have finished their job we will be back on site constructing all the stonework for the external walls and landscaping. We will keep you posted as the work proceeds.

Streamside is a barn that we converted a few years ago, although a small barn in comparision to most, more than two thirds of the external walls had to be rebuilt during this first phase. In the meantime you can see what we did here if you click this link.



Monumental Gateway

Here’s an interesting little project we carried out a few years ago. We were nominated by Plymouth City Council to carry out the complete reconstruction of a Grade II listed monumental gateway at Lockyer’s Quay in Plymouth, Devon.

This link will take you back to our main website telling you what was involved. There you will also find a link to the original archeologists report detailing its full history.
