News » Restoration of Old Shop in Gracehill

We are working with Gracehill Old School Trust on the conservation and restoration of the former shop in Montgomery Street, Gracehill. The building dates from the 18th century and the discovery of this slate on the roof, which records that Henry Kerr re-slated the house in 1835,  gives us an invaluable connection with those who worked on the building before us.

The Trust is aiming for a combination of 18th Century style with 21st century comfort, centred on the conservation of the original shop interior and commercial use of the domestic accommodation at lower basement level.

Phase One of the works commenced in February and will focus on restoration of the roof and attic, together with the conservation of an unusual timber winch which was once used to move heavy goods through the building.
