Barbican House, Lewes

Barbican House in Lewes is a Grade II* Listed building with a brick Georgian facade beneath a timber framed Tudor structure dating back to Henry VIII. The building houses the musuem and library of the Sussex Archaerological Society and was suffering from water ingress, particularly into the library area. 

Recycled clay peg tiles were used on the front elevation and seconds on the side / rear elevations, with a new breathable roofing membrane in place, and the parapet gutters were re-lined with code 6 lead, with enhanced falls to facilitate drainage.

The work also included repairs to the sliding sash windows and lead downpipes, refurbishment of the arched brickwork over the windows and general re-decoration of the woodwork.
