Grade II Listed




Grade II Listed Salford Lads Club is a building packed with history,
heritage and an iconic musical connection. The club was purpose
built and designed by architect Henry Lord in 1903, in distinctive
red brick with red terracotta dressings and detailing, gable
chimneys and slated roof coverings set behind shallow parapets.

The magnificent bay window required rebuilding due to slippage
caused by a water ingress in the roof void above. We have carried
out extensive conservation works to other sections of the building
and were delighted to be requested to return to carryout these
restoration works.
