The Buttercross dates from 1743 – 44, and was designed by the local architect William Baker as an emblem of the town of Ludlow’s wealth.

As part of a Conservation Plan and Condition Report to the local council, our team identified the need for a number of repairs, including major repairs to the cupola. Find out more in our projects section.

Distinction in Building Award 2004

The Granary stands prominently on a hillside overlooking Lower Smite Farm which is the administrative and educational centre of the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust. It was built into the slope of the hill to create level access to lower and upper ground floors and dates from the mid 17th Century.

Its prominent site has exposed the structure to a severe battering from wind and rain which resulted in substantial wet rot decay of the timber frame and racking of the roof. The original wattle infill panels had been removed and were replaced with a modern dense brick which also exacerbated the water ingress and created heavy loading on the frame.

The building project, which was completed in July 2004, included repair and replacement of timber frame elements, replacement of all the infill panels with wattle and daub, some underpinning, re-roofing, and internal joinery including new oak floor boards, elm doors and repair of the staircase.

No 40 and 41 Foregate Street are both Grade ıı listed late C18th buildings, originally town houses. Both properties were in a near derelict state when our client acquired them in 1998 and 1999.

Both are now used successfully as an English Language School. The works involved extensive repairs, re configuration and reinstatement of the Georgian facade. Find out more in the projects section.

Kinver Civic Society Commendation Award, 1999

The Whittington Inn began its life as a small medieval cruck framed hall. During the 17Century it was substantially remodelled and extended masking its humbler origins but leaving it very much as it appears today.

The Carpenters Award in 1999 recognised the restoration as an outstanding example of conservation and repair and it remains a benchmark for all our building repair projects.
