Combermere Abbey Restoration – part 1

Grosvenor are very proud to be part of a team of contractors helping conserve the north wing of the grade I listed Combermere Abbey.

After the dissolution of the monasteries, the abbey evolved into a hall.

It is a tape recorder in stone, brick and timber – and has captured several hundred years of stylistic changes in architecture.

The north wing has suffered over the last 50 years culminating in the collapse of a wall which instigated a campaign to help raise funds for its conservation and restoration.

The first part of the conservation is to understand and record the building before peeling back the layers of history to get to a sustainable and safe core.

For more fascinating information about Combermere and also updates about the hall see the Combermere Restoration website.
