  Roofing Heritage Specialists Complete Luxury Development


Tweet this page


Four luxury residential properties at Severalls Farm in Wallingford, Oxfordshire have been completed to stringent heritage and listed building requirements by national roofing and cladding company Bracknell Roofing.

Having a specialist team for Heritage work enabled them to cope with all the demands on this large, historically significant development of existing buildings.
This included having to reuse clay peg tiles on one of the roofs, working with a bat conservationist on two others and dealing with the requirements of a Grade II listing on the fourth.

Along with these specific challenges, Bracknell Roofing had to complete a number of lead top bays, install an original steel dovecote, including traditional leadwork, and fit flashings around rooflights.

“Bracknell Roofing was able to deal with all elements on what was a challenging project,” said Simon Vickers of Rectory Homes, the developer.

He added: “Bracknell Roofing completed the work to an extremely high standard and we are delighted with the appearance of the roofs.”

Severalls Farm development consists of four large, prestigious properties. The largest two properties, Saxon Barn and Meadow View Barn, are formed around a traditional E-plan.

Particular challenges included traditional leadwork, and fit flashings around rooflights.    During completion of these two properties, Bracknell Roofing had to work with an official from the bat conservation society to ensure the existing colony continued to have easy access to the building.

Particular challenges included traditional leadwork, and fit flashings around rooflights.

This involved cutting ‘bat slots’ in a number of the ridges on the expansive, three wing, E-plan roof that has a total area of over 500m².

Beyond the main tiled roof is the Grade II listed Hay Barn which, because it was originally built from local stone, required Bracknell Roofing to complete the roof using Spanish slate. The company had to ensure that the roof met all current Building Regulation and Listed Building requirements.
