In the summer of 2013 C Ansell & Sons Ltd. were awarded the contract to restore the famous Bird House ruins in Knole Park, Sevenoaks for the Knole Estate and Natural England.
The ruins were in danger of complete collapse. They had to be stabilised. All old sand and cement mortar needed to be removed and the structures repointed in Lime Mortar.
Large sections of the flintwork needed to be rebuilt for this restoration.
