Laxton Hall, Main House, Northamptonshire

Laxton Hall, with its Service Wing and adjacent Stable Block, listed Grade II* and Grade II, is situated on a 16-acre sloping site in a landscaped valley, near the village of Laxton in Northamptonshire.

The manor of Laxton was owned in the 16th century by the Stafford family and later inherited by the Evans family who, in the second half of the 18th century, built the present Laxton Hall, later enlarged, including the addition of the Stable Block, at the beginning of the 19th century, to the design of Humphrey Repton and others. Since 1968, Laxton Hall houses an old people’s home.

Major historic restoration project of the Main House included the obtaining of an English Heritage Grant and all relevant permissions, full design, site supervision and the administration of construction contract and specialist subcontracts. The total replacement of the decayed lead lined flat roof with four glazed lanterns, slated pitched roofs, chimneys, stonework parapet walls and cornices, syphonic drainage system as well as substantial stonework repairs at external walls, steps, balustrades and the like were the major components of the project.
