In 2012/13 we worked on a stunning orangery in Wiltshire. The tie bar plates had rotted away at the base of the arches supporting the glass roof. The original wrought iron sheet was rivetted, the team had to cut the rivets out remove them and make an accurate template using one good one. The team then had to shape, drill and bend a flange on the new plates; both right and left handed. They were then reattached in situ, ready to receive the new glass roof.
There will be more images to post on this project when it’s complete. If you have a similar heritage ironwork restoration project and would like some advice on where to start, please get in touch because we’d love to help.
