Langley Gate House  
The restoration of Langley Gate House seemed an impossible task to many people, but proved an exciting challenge for its owners the Landmark Trust, the architect, and ourselves as the main contractors.The 17th Century gate house required extensive repairs both to the timber framed elevation with its brick and plaster infill panels, and to the stone work of the West Elevation.
 
Langley Gate House Before restoration Furthermore the roof covering, which is of Harnage Stone tiles, needed to be completely stripped and relaid. During the works it also proved possible to “jack up” part of the timber framed elevation, where it had sagged by approximately 9", and to re-form an area of timber framing that had been removed while the building had been in use as a tractor shed!
 
Internally a faithful reconstruction of the oak windows, metal casements and leaded lights was carried out; a simple but elegant oak staircase was installed, boarded doors were replaced and painted timber kitchen units fitted.The panelling was also reinstated in the main sitting room.
This project is an excellent example of the type of work that has been carried out by Treasure & Son to many timber framed cottages and houses within the area.
