Repair and Restoration

Rokeby Park, Barnard Castle *

Client: Mortham Estates

Rokeby Park dates from 1730 and is possibly unique in its design. It is an early example of the new Palladian style introduced into Britain in the 18th Century. It was designed by Sir Thomas Robinson - a contemporary of Lord Burlington. The facades are a mixture of ashlar and stone and ochre painted render.

Geoffrey Holland was project architect for a major repair contract, partly funded by a Department of the Environment grant, which included re-roofing, re-building of the upper stages of the staircase towers, considerable masonry replacement and consolidation, complete re-rendering and re-decoration, re-fenestration and dry rot repairs.

Geoffrey has also carried out fabric inspections for several other minor projects on the estate including repairs to Rokeby Church, the stable block and other buildings as well as smaller works.
