Slackwood Farm

Slackwood Farm
Restoration of a derelict Grade II* Listed Slackwood Farmhouse, consisting of an extension and refurbishment of a 3- storey, 8 bedroom, 17th century home.

The project was completed sympathetically throughout to both maintain and enhance the original features of this listed structure. The 800-year old farmhouse is adjacent to the Leighton Moss RSPB reserve in Carnforth, Lancashire. The works were of a very specialist nature, which included the preservation and repairs to the existing stone mullions, lintels and cills with the use of lime render and lime plaster.

Other conservation works included the removal, preservation and relaying of the existing floor boarding and the integration of a new glass bespoke extension to meet the English Heritage and conservation approval. Slackwood Farm won the Lancaster District Design Award and the Civic Trust Awards, the longest standing built environment awards scheme in Europe.
