We are extremely excited and proud to have been chosen to supply 200 sq metres of our finest Tudor Restoration solid oak flooring for Leeds Castle, “the loveliest Castle in the world”.
About Leeds Castle
Leeds Castle is located in Kent, near Maidstone. A castle has been on the site since 1119. In the 13th century it became a favourite residence of King Edward I. Later, in the 16th century, Henry VIII transformed the castle for his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. The castle today dates mostly from the 19th century. It has been open to the public since 1976.
The Leeds Castle Foundation is a private charitable trust whose aim is to preserve the castle and grounds for the benefit of the public. Leeds Castle is a Grade I listed building and an internationally important structure. As a result, maintenance and restoration work at the 12th Century Leeds Castle requires care, expertise and money.
Our Solid Oak Flooring
The team had worked hard to fulfil this order. Most of the distressed oak flooring has been finished and delivered, only a few more boards remain to be stained.
It is now in the hands of the wonderful carpenters at Leeds Castle in order to be expertly installed.
Finally, the Restoration solid oak flooring will be revealed during the upcoming Christmas dinner at Leeds Castle’s Battel Hall. We hope it will complement the amazing décor of the building and will grace it for years to come.
