    Eshton Hall - Contract Award

    Aura are thrilled to have been appointed to undertake the restoration of the magnificent Grade II Listed Eshton Hall Country House.

    The Hall, originally a country home has existed on these grounds in North Yorkshire for hundreds of years, possibly as far back as 1200’s. The main hall however was burnt to the ground in late 1500’s with the new main building and its impressive tower built in early 1600’s. Although the estate dates back over 800 years, the existing house was successfully remodelled for the Wilson family in 1825, using an Elizabethan Revival style designed by architect George Webster of Kendal.

    The project which Aura are about to commence comprises of the replacement of slate roof coverings to the main hall and patch repairs to the adjacent Range. Aura will also install a new flat roof around the central atrium discharging into new down pipes via reconfigured lead gutters. Repairs will also be undertaken to the timber roof structure and interior of the building and finally new below ground drainage will be installed where necessary.

    Aura are delighted to return to this beautiful Hall having carried out the restoration to the prominent tower and ornate leaded dome roof in 2013.

    Contract Value – circa £900k
