Gateley Smithers Purslow



Nether Hall

Nether Hall is an enlarged manor house on the outskirts of Doncaster. It dates from the mid c15th and has been rebuilt many times.

Smithers Purslow were appointed to oversee repairs of the west wing of the house when it was found to be unstable. The roof structure was found to date from c16th. The decision was made to retain the roof with the minimum of intervention to the original structure. Any replacement timber work was carefully introduced alongside the existing timbers only where necessary for structural purposes. The work also involved reforming the original dormer structures. The roof was then recovered using natural Westmorland slate. Parapet gutters were formed in stepped leadwork.
