This magnificent building is a Jacobean mansion, set in an estate of 300 acres.  In the 14th century it was the home of Thomas Foxley, who rebuilt Windsor Castle for the crown.  Masons from Windsor were used to erect a small castle at Bramshill in 1327.  The work can still be seen today in the cellars of the house. After World War II, the exiled King Michael and Queen Ana of Romania lived at Bramshill.  It was then acquired in 1953 by the Home Office and is still used today as a police training college. Grade: I, Date Listed: 8 July 1952

Scope of works

The proposal was to fix oak riven lath to existing timber joints and traditional lime plaster to ceilings and brick walls in the Mansard roof area.  This specification was stipulated because the house is a grade 1 listed building.

Artisan Plastercraft had to fix oak riven lathes using stainless steel fixings to existing and new oak roof joists/beams.

Sufficient animal hair has to be used during this process and particular attention to the climate is imperative to obtain the desired finish. The temperature had to be 5 degrees and rising before application of the haired plaster is possible.

Our craftsmanship was tested constantly throughout this project as every detail had to be analysed and critiqued.  We demonstrated how you can achieve an old traditional finish in historic buildings if you have the skill, tools and knowledge.
