Built in 1803 from local granite, these free-standing farm outbuildings, with 600mm thick rubble-filled random stone walls, had developed assorted cracking as a result of historic ground movement, roof spread and thrust from saturated high ground to the rear of the stable block.
Structural repairs were required which would secure the masonry, stabilise the buildings and mitigate the chances of further cracking in the future. To help ensure the restoration and retention of structural integrity the roof on the main barn was to be replaced, to stop further spreading of the elevations, and the saturated high ground to the rear of the stables removed to relieve hydrostatic pressure.
A programme of appropriate repairs was devised to stabilise the outbuildings, using a combination of Helifix remedial products and concealed installation techniques.
The well proven sympathetic Helifix repairs restored integrity to the 200 year old farm buildings while retaining their original character and visual appearance.
