Yeoman Rainguard Plays a Part in Bringing Listed Mansion House Back to Former Glory
A grade II listed Mansion on the outskirts of Ulverston, Cumbria, has respectfully been restored and developed by housebuilders, Charles Church, Lancashire.
As a way of protecting the future of the mansion, planning permission was granted for it to be converted into 19 apartments and the gatehouse into a bungalow.
Charles Church ensured that the conversion work carried out was sympathetic to the Scottish baronial style whilst respecting the original features.
These qualities also needed to be reflected when it came to the replacement of the rainwater systems on both the mansion and the gatehouse.
With over 40 years’ experience of providing aesthetically appropriate, yet highly functional rainwater systems for heritage and listed building projects, Yeoman Rainguard were the perfect choice to provide a suitable system for the restoration.
On the mansion house gutters that could not be refurbished were replaced with Yeoman Rainguard MOG 25 x 100 mm cast iron gutters finished in Light Aircraft Grey colour along with complementing rectangular rainwater pipes.
The use of Yeoman Rainguard ornamental ear bands and corner ear bands for the cast iron pipes played a part in maintaining the authenticity of the façade of the building.
In areas where replacement gutters were required to match up seamlessly to the original gutters, Yeoman Rainguard were able to replicate exact size and profiles with their manufacturing capabilities using GRP material.
Cast iron soil pipes were provided from the Rainguard TX range providing a highly durable, easy to install waste water drainage solution.
The gatehouse, tastefully converted into a bungalow, was fully fitted with brand-new Yeoman Rainguard cast iron MOG gutters and round down pipes. Finished in a classy gloss black paint the rainwater system was befitting of the buildings design and heritage.
All Yeoman Rainguard products were fitted by their own directly employed fixing team ensuring a quality installation and end result.
