Feasibility Study

Conservation and Reconstruction of a Ruined Eighteenth Century Garden Building

Following recent archaeological excavation work to discover a missing 'Thatched House' in the landscaped gardens of a large eighteenth century house, Ingram Consultancy have been appointed to look at the feasibility for exposing, conserving and re-presenting the site.

Our work has included investigating the original building form and materials, and recreating the Thatched House design based on site archaeology and historical sketches.  We are also preparing options for presenting the site to visitors and possibly reconstructing the building from the exposed ruins.   An incredibly interesting and rewarding experience - watch this space!
