Originally a moated, fortified manor house and the former home to three Queens of England, the castle was extended and altered over subsequent centuries of occupation. Devastated by fire in 1978, Astley Castle became the subject of an ambitious restoration project spanning three years and costing over £2.5million.

Renovated on behalf of the Landmark Trust, a charity that restores and revives historic buildings carefully and sensitively, the castle was selected from six shortlisted buildings to win the Royal Institute of British Architect’s highest accolade last month.

Protectahome were brought in at the first phase of restoration to undertake structural repairs and complete the initial stage of stabilising the remaining walls of the listed building prior to rebuild.

Our skilled technicians installed over 160 consolidation and stitching Cintec anchors, included two 12 metre anchors.

Cintec RAC, RWT, Stud and Rebar Anchors were also used, ranging from 450mm to 12 metres in length.

To facilitate the installation of the Cintec Anchors, Diamond Core holes of between 25mm and 65mm in diameter were drilled. Careful, precision drilling was required to preserve the remaining structure.

Contracted by conservation builders, Protectahome, who are experienced in works on listed and historical buildings, installed over 160 consolidation and stitching Cintec anchors, included two 12metre anchors.

Astley Castle won an impressive 27% share of votes for the Stirling Prize, which is now in its 18th year.
