Croxteth Hall Liverpool Grade II

Croxteth Hall and Country Park is a magnificent Grade II* Listed stately home bursting with history and heritage.

Introduction: Croxteth Hall is a historic country estate located in Liverpool, England. The hall, dating back to the 16th century, has been a significant part of the region's cultural and historical heritage. Over the years, the estate has faced various challenges, including deterioration of its heritage buildings and grounds. A project was initiated to complete heritage works at Croxteth Hall, aiming to restore and preserve this valuable piece of history.

Background: Croxteth Hall has a rich history, once serving as the ancestral home of the Molyneux family, the Earls of Sefton. The estate includes a Grade II-listed hall, beautiful gardens, a farm, and a historic stable block. The hall and its grounds were open to the public, functioning as a museum, educational facility, and a venue for events. However, due to budget constraints and deferred maintenance, some areas of the estate had fallen into disrepair.

Our team carried out extensive restoration works including Asbestos removal, Stripping the slate roof and preserving slates for reuse, Structural steel installation, Timberwork, Restoration of rooflights, Conservation and redecoration of rainwater goods, Restoration and restabilising of stone roof urns, Replacement of missing and deteriorated brickwork, Rebuilding chimney stacks, Restoration of Timber Lanterns, Lime mortar repointing, Joinery works to lantern over main stairs, Extensive leadwork repair and replacement, Parapet restoration to elevations and courtyard, Ironwork conservation. Works carried out in consideration to Myerscough College who teach on site and sympathetic to regular filming and events taking place at the Hall.
