Greys Artstone are delighted to have helped in the restoration of Seacroft Grange, a major land mark in Seacroft, Leeds. Once under threat this 17th Century building is now getting a new lease of life.
This is a great example of our commitment to product development for use with historic buildings, listed buildings and areas of conservation such as National Parks.
Seacroft is home to a number of historical buildings, which includes Seacroft Grange, also known as Tottie Hall.
This elegant building was built for the Tottie family in the 1600s and plays an important part in the history of the village and its heritage.
It then became the property of John Wilson and known as Seacroft Grange. The Wilson coat of arms was displayed in stone over the east door of the main building. The primary school was located here from 1941-1974 then the building was used as an Adult Education Centre.
The building was then left derelict until being taken over by Springfield Healthcare Group who have transformed Seacroft Grange into the care village it is now.
Leeds City Council gave permission to use Greys Artstone reproduction roofing slates for use to develop the project, as the slate range manufactured by the company Greys Artstone are hand crafted to give an authentic roofscape detailed moulding, a choice of colours.
