This beautiful historic property, formally known as ‘The Old Beams’ and later ‘The Angel’ Public House in Terrington, Norfolk, is a grade II listed building C1700.
Having completed previous work for the owners, it was discovered whilst we were re-roofing dry rot and woodworm in all roof timbers and joists, to such an extent the roof was beyond salvage. As with any historical listed buildings, we worked closely with the Conservation Officers from the local council to oversee the project alongside building control.
Especially relevant when dealing with any historic building is the careful preservation of existing historic roof timbers, or in this case – replacement of defective timbers where required.
Despite throwing up unforeseen challenges every day we were able to replace the damaged roof timbers, whilst also carefully renovating associated timbers to complete the roof structure back to its original integrity. This included replacing both dormer windows with purpose made windows in the original style and design.
Although challenging at times we are very pleased with the end result with the building now back to its former glory and the client once again has a beautiful family home for them to enjoy for years to come.
