Wentworth Woodhouse Phase 2

Wentworth Woodhouse is a Grade I listed stately home in South Yorkshire, with the longest façade of any country house in England. It stands in 87 acres of gardens and grounds and has extensive views over former parkland, including a deer park and lakes, which are vested in the Fitzwilliam Wentworth Amenity Trust.

MCA's York Heritage Team are working with client Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust and architect Donald Insall Associates to design conservation engineering interventions, remedial repairs and strengthing as part of the main re-roofing scheme to the Mansion House. We are also providing advice in relation to urgent temporary works. Elements include propping to decayed roof timbers, short term stabilisation of masonry parapets, consolidation and strapping to gables, statues and large decorative urns, drainage repairs and assessment of the gallery to the Marble Saloon.
