Re-slating Stamford Railway Station with Collyweston slates
As a sub-contractor we were asked to price and carry out the major re-slating of this grade 2 listed train station as most of the slate roof covering was original to the years of 1816-1886 when it was built.
In poor condition and in desperate need of re-slating the roof had become a safety hazard to public train users. On inspection it was noted that a high proportion of the slates had perished which neccessitated the provision of new replacement slate.
As we possess a very large stock of slates, as well as the UK's largest team of Collyweston slaters we were awarded the contract.
All works went smoothly and helped by a dry summer the work was completed ahead of schedule, providing an aesthetically eye pleasing and safe Collyweston slate roof for at least another 100 years.
