Repairing decorative plasterwork in Northallerton’s old police station
Redevelopment of Northallerton Police Station.
We are excited to be involved in the renovation and development of this historic C18 building in Ryedale's home town of Northallerton. It's a double thrill as not only are we going to be involved in part of the project, restoring and repairing interior decorative plasterwork, but we also get to enjoy seeing this fascinating building getting a new lease of life and enriching our wonderful town - also creating many jobs for local people as it is turned into a 32 bedroom inn, bar and restaurant.
The old police station is a Grade II listed building with a rich history within the town. It was originally a house, then local authority offices and was converted into a police station in 1987. It was built in the mid to late 18th Century with later alterations but the building has some wonderful original features that will be preserved including a studded and vertically boarded door surrounded in C19 ashlar and a 2 light mullion window with round trefoiled lights and stained glass detail.
With its elegant bay windows and other period features, we look forward to seeing how Metnor Construction develop this gem of a building for the 21st Century and hope to keep you updated on our part in the project.
