Tickenham Court is a Grade 2 listed building with a medieval hall, in Tickenham, Somerset.
We worked very closely with the architect on this project to get the desired finish and colour of the mortar for the pointing. Several samples were made until we got there, the pointing was eventually done with a local pit sand and lime putty.
The building had major roof repairs, so we did a lot of wall top consolidation to make them safe, and to allow new timbers to be set on top. There were huge Welsh slate chimney caps installed.
The most enjoyable part of this project was the banker work. We made several repairs to the Bath stone windows, retaining as much of the original stone as possible. Two of the windows had been poorly converted to doors at some point over the years. We took precise details of the original mouldings and carefully fixed the newly worked stones to match in perfectly.
We also completely hand crafted a new window from scratch including window cill, jambs, mullion, a whole carved tracery section and a hood mould.
