Gentilshurst

A traditional built house, using the local Fittleworth stone for the semi-dressed rubblework, Somerset Doulting for the stone dressings, and Woodkirk for the stone steps to the main entrance.

The stone was fixed to the blockwork structure using a series of stainless steel cramps and screws, leaving an insulated cavity.

The stone to the windows were worked in 2 halves, an inner and outer, with a rebate to allow a nominal thickness of insulation to be inserted between the two; these halves were then ‘blackjacked’ and assembled in the workshops.  All was pointed in a lime mortar.
