Marlipins Musuem comprises a stone built structure dating back to C12th, being one of the oldest secular buildings in the country.
It is Grade II* listed and classified as a Scheduled Monument, it's front wall facing the coast, being the principle feature, faced in a checker board pattern of Caen stone and knapped flint work.
The work involved a complete re-tile / re-slate of the roof structure on a 'like for like' basis, using recycled and second clay tiles and Horsham stone slates, incorporating a breathable roofing membrane.
A new ply substrate was also introduced, fixed to the top of the rafters with penny gaps between sheets, to preserve the visual integrity of the space.
The work was carried out in close collaboration with Historic England, so that as much of the original fabric was retained as possible and a viewing panel was inserted through the ply to reveal the original Horsham slates / roof structure.
