Killerton‘s roof project is now complete.
It has been a year since Killerton saw scaffolding go up for major TLC to the roof and building. After astounding public support, the successful conservation project has finished.
Over ten months, the roof scape has been transformed. The worst affected roofs have been replaced, removing an unsightly temporary roof and old ventilation units. Urgent repairs and restoration to the stonework, parapets and roof lanterns is complete. A grant from Viridor Credits enabled the reintroduction of seven historic chimneys, with wood burners utilising Killerton logs. The building has benefitted from a fresh lick of paint and is more sustainable with new ventilation methods, improved insulation and restored windows.
Phillip Smart, General Manager “We’re delighted to have a watertight house after a decade of leaks and we’ve waved goodbye to the buckets that used to catch the drips inside the house. Thanks to our many supporters, we were able to surpass our original £100k fundraising target, allowing us to invest additional funds directly into this urgent conservation project.
