Gallagher's Kentish Ragstone Highly Commended at Stone Awards
Gallagher's Kentish Ragstone was Highly Commended in the Repair and Restoration category at the recent Natural Stone Awards for its work at Knole House in Sevenoaks.
The Jacobean house is undergoing a major restoration project and part of this was the restoration of the great barn which was seriously damaged in a fire five years ago, resulting in the demolition of the stone gables.
The house is built of Kentish Ragstone, and as the only remaining supplier of the stone, Gallagher was asked to supply stone for the restoration project including finials and gables to ensure that the repairs blended in with the original house. Great care was taken to ensure that they complemented the original stonework and the judges commented that it was "hard to see the interventions although they were numerous on this great barn."
