Leadwork to the Duchess of Kent Mausoleum (Frogmore House)

Duchess of Kent Mausoleum, Queen Victoria's Mother, Frogmore House

The specialist heritage builders carrying out this restoration, called us in to replace the leadwork on the roof of the Duchess of Kent mausoleum.

We stripped the original lead which had been on there for 100+ years and recycled it.  We then carried out the necessary restoration replacing the oval parapet box gutters in Code 7 lead, which was a nice challenge because the box gutters needed to be bossed into their oval shape.

On this project were also lucky enough to see HRH Queen Elizabeth II more than once, walking her dogs around the estate.
