The National Trust’s Ickworth Uncovered Project, for which Caroe Architecture are lead designers and conservation architects was featured on ITV Anglia News on 23rd February.
The project will see the complete re-roofing of the impressive central rotunda of this Grade I listed stately home near Bury St Edmunds. The existing slate roof in this location was beginning to leak and so Caroe Architecture Ltd. and the rest of the design team have undertaken to completely replace the roof covering in Westmorland slate, maximising the opportunity provided by the considerable access works and scaffolding required.
This is the largest conservation project currently being undertaken by the National Trust, with additional careful conservation and repair works also being carried out to the East Link gallery and the Squash Court Cafe, which are being re-roofed in order to ensure the longevity of the building and its future enjoyment by visitors and those interested in its fascinating history.
