We rebuilt a Victorian wall at the front of the old school house in Astwood in 2014.We had to take down and clean the bricks from the old wall before laying new concrete footings.We then rebuilt the wall exactly as it was when it was originally built. We used hydraulic lime to build the wall and sourced Victorian copings for the top where a lot had suffered due to poor cement repairs from the 1990’s.
We carried out a full repoint of the front facade of a grade II listed old bakehouse in North Crawley in 2016. The house had been repointed in the 1970’s using a cement based mortar. We raked this out using hand tools and then repointed using a hydraulic lime mortar. As with the majority of listed buildings we used the exposed aggregate joint finish as per the conservation officers wishes. We also had another craftsman in to render the other part of the cottage in lime.
