N.E.J. Stevenson Ltd has been awarded the contract to rebuild the 19th Century Oak Library at Stoke Rochford Hall in Lincolnshire.
The Jacobean style hall was built by William Burn for Christopher Turnor between 1841 and 1843. With lavish Victorian interiors, finial-capped turrets, an impressive Grand Hall and a magnificent conservatory leading to the landscaped terraces, Stoke Rochford Hall is one of the finest historic buildings in the country.
Nowadays, the hall is used as a conference centre and banqueting facility and delegates enjoy the 28 acres of formal gardens and superb 18 hole golf course adjacent to the mansion.
A devastating fire in January 2005 completely destroyed the library leaving no physical evidence for restorers to work from. However, some photographs and pictures do exist and the our team of craftsmen will re-design and manufacture the Oak Library using the expertise we gained in the restoration work at Windsor castle, Knighthayes Court and Eltham Palace.
The project is to be completed by next April and will provide work for around two months at the end of the year. Rodney Melville & Partners from Royal Leamington Spa are the architects and Austin Newport of Birmingham the Management Contractors.
