Restoration of Engine House, Leigh Spinners Mill
Stabilization of Grade II Listed Building
We started work on this former spinning mill in February 2015. The works involve at restoration to the Engine House roof.
The building is located in Leigh, Manchester and is GradeII Listed. I believe that is is possible one of the last working mills building in Northern England.
This photo shows the size of the Engine Wheel.
Internally we have had a full Birdcage scaffolding install. This is to allow our Restoration Contractors & Timber Specialists to undertake works to the Engine House roof internally.
We started work on this project in late January 2015. The client required the stabilization of this Grade II Listed Building.
The Building has suffered from water ingress over the years which has caused the collapse of the roof truss.
We used a number of jacks & props to raise the truss to its original position .
This is a view of inside the building before the stabilization works were undertook. A number of the roof truss has collapsed due to water ingress.
Here our Restoration Contractors are installing steel sheeting to the truss to prevent uplift. The Grade II listed building in Yorkshire has now been cleared of the collapsed roof debris & near completion of the restoration program.
