Restoration of 116 High Street
The Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire
This major restoration project to reinstate the Grade II* listed Georgian town house for Heritage Lincolnshire at 116 High Street in Boston required the skills of master craftsman to bring the building back to its former glory.
The building, formerly the first private Bank in Lincolnshire, had fallen into disrepair having been unoccupied for over twenty years and being badly damaged by water and dry rot.
The works involved the delicate process of timber and masonry repair and rebuilding to enable the internal scaffold which was effectively supporting the building to be removed. This was followed by the conservation, repair and reinstatement of original features including stained glass, cast iron fan lights and feature windows, sash windows, timber panelling, cornices etc. Our in-house specialists within the Lindum Joinery division were commissioned to carry out the extensive works involving the delicate process of timber repair and rebuilding.
The works were completed using various heritage techniques and materials to comply with both English Heritage and Heritage Lottery Funding.
Alongside these works we also completed the construction of four starter units for small businesses in materials and style sympathetic to the existing listed building.
Thanks to a wide range of partners the funding raised enabled this building to be restored and conserved and brought back into use as a sustainable community asset. Photographs supplied courtesy of Gleeds.
