Time-lapse of construction progress
Stamford Stone are proud to have been chosen to supply the stone for the new Orangery at Rushton Hall. The first of its kind within the Midlands, the new Orangery is the perfect venue for weddings, conferences and events and caters for up to 500 guests. To stay in harmony with the Grade I listed building, architects specialising in listed buildings helped with the design and style. With five stages of construction, the luxury hotel selected Clipsham Limestone to ensure that the Orangery fits with the look and feel of the rest of this beautiful historic stately home.
The Orangery went through several planning processes, including having to be approved by Historic England – we were able to provide technical drawings to aid Rushton’s design team. Rushton Hall was originally built in 1438 and Thomas Tresham put the front gallery on to complete the building in 1600. Further alterations were made in later years, and now the glorious addition is complete, as you’ll see from the time lapse video above.
The new Orangery boasts an imposing stone façade and exquisite interiors with intricate ceilings and dazzling crystal chandeliers, seamlessly combining stunning stone floors with the latest technology including a state of the art audio system and Wi-Fi.
