ICR awarded prestigeous National Trust engineering conservation project

Woolbeding Gardens, West Sussex


During July and August ICR completed phase 1 of the conservation of a rare 1840’s 3 cylinder water wheel gear driven beam pump.

The preliminary phase included a full site assessment and extensive disassembly project to quantify the level of repair and intervention to further inform the conservation methodology and long-term preservation strategy.

The second phase concentrated on repairing and replacing the oak framing and support trestles which carry the waterwheel, pump mechanism and beam assemblies.

Phase 3 which will continue during summer 2014 will undertake the conservation of the waterwheel and pump.
