Work has now started on the stunning Abney Hall in Cheadle, Cheshire. Abney Hall is a Grade II* listed Victorian house surrounded by parkland, dating back to 1847.
In 1851, future Mayor of Manchester James Watts purchased the building and commissioned architect A. W. N. Pugin to redesign the interior. Augustus Pugin is remembered for his integral role in Gothic Revival architecture and he famously designed the interiors of the Palace of Westminster.
Over the next few weeks, Quadriga’s work to the hall will include a sympathetic masonry clean, stone re-pointing and indents and repair and redecoration of timber windows. We’ll share a case study on the project once it is complete.
