Job specific details & scope of works
Originally the former ancestral home of Viscounts, Lydiard House Conference Centre is set in 260 acres of 18th century parkland and ornamental lake, just minutes from the M4.
Swindon’s foremost historic park and a designated Country Park, including the striking Palladian House and one of the country’s most beautiful parish churches, by the beginning of the 21st century, the park was in need of substantial works to conserve its heritage value.
In 2005, Swindon Borough Council was awarded £3 million from the Heritage Lottery to restore and reinstate significant 18th century landscape and
architectural features including renovating the Grade II listed Coach House.
The Cast Iron gutters, downpipes and fittings supplied by Rainclear can bee seen when visitors arrive at the tea rooms in the historic 18th Century Coach House, in the atmospheric setting of the restored horse stalls and stable buildings and outdoor seating area within the Walled Garden courtyard.
The half round gutters and round Cast Iron Downpipes are beautifully in keeping with the style of the period while offering the consistant quality and
durability of a modern manufacturing process.
The components were supplied in a primer coating and painted on site in a matching grey.
