Thornthwaite Hall, Bampton

Thornthwaite Hall was probably built in the second half of the 16th Centuary and is now a grade II listed building.

Askins & Little were appointed to carry out the re-roofing and masonry repairs to Thornthwaite Hall as part of the re-development of the building. The roof was fully stripped and re-slated, with new sections being added to suit the new extensions to the building. Askins & Little carried out the stone extension and installed new stone window surrounds throughout the building. The stone chimneys were taken down and rebuilt and the masonry was repointed in traditional stone mortar. Finally, a new sandstone plaque depicting the client's family coat of arms was hand carved and fitted above the building entrance.
