This granite-built Grade II* listed building dates approximately to the 16th century (possibly earlier) and is located within the Blisland Conservation Area in Cornwall.

Lime Pointing and Land Drainage BlislandA full renovation of the building was undertaken in the 1970’s, but some of the materials used then were unsuitable for a building of this age.

Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd were engaged to bring breathability back into this wonderful listed building in Cornwall. This project was divided into 2 phases. Phase 1 saw us removing the existing external cementitious applications to 3 elevations and repointing the exposed jointings using an appropriate Natural Lime/sand mortar.

An external Land Drainage System was then introduced to the 3 elevations to further maintain the breathability of the building. This consisted of excavating a land drainage trench and backfilling it with appropriately sized clean stone.

In Phase 2 of this project we will be undertaking internal Lime plastering applications, internal slate flooring and window and door restorations. More details on Phase 2 will be added to our Portfolio page when the works are complete.
