Lime Plaster & Cornice work in Grade II Listed Building located in our home town of Northallerton, North Yorkshire
Great new local project for Ryedale due to start in October
Its undeniably a huge perk of the job that we get to work in some of the UK's wonderful period buildings, that are steeped in history and so important to our country's heritage. To be able to restore, repair and conserve the decorative plasterwork in these halls, castles and grand houses for future generations is such a privilege, and none so much as Brierley House in our home town of Northallerton, as work begins on the renovation and refurbishment of the grade II listed building, at the centre of the County Council’s HQ which is to be adapted to accommodate more staff.
Work for us will be primarily interior lath and lime plasterwork plus some straight run cornice work, but we are pleased to have secured this particular job on home turf, through Birches who are the main contractors on this project.
Designed by prolific York based architect Walter Brierley and built in 1903, this fabulous building was handed over to the council for use in 1906. Walter Brierley was one of the finest architects of the early twentieth century, very much the favoured architect of the North Riding County Council at that time. He designed 300 buildings between 1885 and 1926 and Ryedale Plasterers have completed work in at least 3 or 4 of them, including Acklam Hall. It seems we may be following Mr Brierley around the county and look forward to working in more of his architecture.
We start on this project in October and will post updates as we progress.
