In January Stone Edge began work at Brodsworth Hall, South Yorkshire as part of the #caringforbrodsworth English Heritage conservation project. The year-long project will see us undertake ‘behind the scenes’ work including major carpentry repairs to windows and leaking skylights. We will renovate the Victorian revolving window shutters on the ground floor which will allow light back into rooms that have been in darkness for years.
We are renewing the heating and electrical systems, to the relief of Brodsworth volunteers, whilst also installing new environmental monitors, which will enable better control of temperature and humidity, ensuring better preservation of the hall’s collections.
Dating back to the Victorian period, Brodsworth Hall is Grade I listed and has been in the care of English Heritage since 1990. The hall is an excellent example of conservation over restoration, working to preserve the house and its contents whilst staying true to the history and alterations made over time.
