Above: Grade 11 listed, Bampton. This beautifully antiquated property will be the subject of hot-mixed lime mortar restoration later this year.
Below: Grade 11 listed house in Bledington, Oxfordshire. We'll do the gable end first as that's most in need of attention.
Below: C 17th century listed brick built cottage in Highworth requiring extensive renovation. This is an ongoing project where the front elevation - consisting of extremely absorbent, soft and friable non-standard brickwork - has now been repointed using lime. We started plastering a while back and aim to complete the works as the project opens up allowing us to progress.
Below: Grade 11 listed badly weathered gable end in Aston near Bampton.
Littlemore: previous inappropriate cement weather-struck pointing now means all elevations must be raked out and repointed in hot-mixed lime mortar.
Repointed with a rich and therefore very brittle cement mortar, this all needs removing for the health and longevity of the property.
