A stately home once owned by Lord Shuttleworth has been restored by Conlon Construction.
Commissioned by Lancashire County Council Museum Service, these vital works were undertaken to restore the façade on the hall’s south, north and west elevations.
The hall, which is operated on behalf of the National Trust, remained closed to the public throughout the works.
“We’ve a lot of experience in heritage projects and understand the skill, materials and budgets required to deliver a project of this nature,” said Michael Conlon, chairman at Conlon Construction.
“Thanks to TV programmes like Downton Abbey, there’s a renewed interest in stately homes, so we’re pleased to have delivered a programme of work that will further extend the life of the building.”
County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, Lancashire County Council cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, added: “Gawthorpe Hall is a very special building that we operate on behalf of the National Trust.
“Because of its importance, we’ve invested a significant amount of money in the conservation project to preserve it for the future.
“It has been closed since last May and we are delighted that the work has been completed on time and the public will be able to enjoy visiting it again soon.
Gawthorpe Hall holds the North West’s largest collection of portraits and collections of intricate lace, embroidery and needle work. An Elizabethan gem in the heart of industrial Lancashire, it is situated on the banks of the River Calder in Padiham in Burnley.
