Sytch House Mill Shropshire

Overview

Sytch House Mill was built circa 1790. It a traditional 3 story building with a 20ft cast iron and steel water wheel which has now been removed for refurbishment.

This project is ongoing, structural cracks on the building located front elevation & right side gable were so bad a careful recording and take down operation was undertaken. This required a brick by brick system to enable new foundations to be constructed and the structure put back to its former best.

The mill now has a retaining wall surrounding it with the front facade built of stone with a structural concrete block wall behind it. A land drain has also been installed to intercept water and divert it away.

Re-pointing of the original brickwork is being undertaken using traditional lime mortar produced in Much Wenlock, and a hand carved datestone has been produced and installed.

Internal works are now under way preserving as much of the original workings as possible which promises to deliver a truly spectacular, bespoke building.

Our Services

  • historical building and structure relocation

    Historical Building & Structure Relocation

    Buildings of historical interest often come under threat from encroaching societal pressures, sometimes caused by urban regeneration, sometimes simpler commercial pressures. In these instances, relocating the building to a new site may be an ideal solution, saving the structure and affording the opportunity to restore a building to its former glory.

    Recording and cataloguing each individual brick, piece of stone, window, door and all other physical features, preserves the accuracy and historical merit of the structure.
