Burghley House

Stonebank Ironcraft appointed by the Burghley House Preservation Trust Ltd and Natural England for the restoration and repair of the iron railings in the park at Burghley House.  The fence is considered to be an essential feature of the historic landscape dividing two character areas of the original park: Lower Park and The Paddocks.

The project is part of the substantial restoration project currently underway at Burghley and forms part of the HLS Scheme, which is partly funded by Natural England.  The project philosophy is the systematic restoration that merges the landscape, original materials, as well as the fence design and installation.

The project and restoration form part of the Capability Brown Tricentennial celebrations in 2016.  The original railings will be carefully excavated, mapped and removed from the site.  Stonebank will then undertake the restoration and repair before finally reinstalling along the same historic line.

Furthermore, Burghley Estate comissioned two kilometeres of Deer Fencing with a sector that had to be removed for the yearly horse trials.  This section had to follow the traditions of continuosly welded fencing, and its flexible and strength.  This quandary meant that Stonebank's engineering and fabrication to produce a new method of construction that allows the fencing to be manhandled in and out of the ground whilst retaining its strength and apperance.
