Medieval Gate House undergoes Restoration

In the grounds of a Medieval Manor House in Norfolk stands this 2-storey derelict brick Gatehouse.

The Gatehouse dates from 1570 and includes a Coat of Arms, terracotta columns, windows to the first floor and a stone plaque in the gable head. Works included new roofing and timber replacement, brick repairs and repointing on all elevations.  Joists and floorboards replaced and the clearance of vegetation from the external walls and steps.

The 16C oak door which led to the first floor has been carefully removed and Seamans have restored it beautifully in their Joinery Shop.

Prospect House, Thurston

When Seamans Building decided to move its operations from Stowmarket town centre to Thurston, the experienced build team opted to design and build its new offices, using the skeleton of an existing tractor shed to form a modern, functional, and sustainable building. When you are considering your project please call in and visit us at Prospect House to discuss your requirements.

Prospect House has been operational since December 2005 and has proven robust and suits the needs of modern contracting, with open plan, spacious desk space, good natural lighting and all within an open farmland setting.

Situated at Elm Farm Park, Thurston, there is planning permission for further commercial development. If you are looking to rent or lease commercial offices near Bury St. Edmunds, we would be pleased to discuss your requirements.
