Hackwood Park, Hampshire

Hackwood Park is a large country estate that primarily consists of an early 18th-century ornamental woodland and formal lawn garden and a large detached house. It is within the boundaries of Winslade, Basingstoke in Hampshire. In its 260-acre grounds contain 23 separately listed structures including a teahouse pavilion, an ornamental bridge, statue of George I of Great Britain, three dispersed stone tōrōs, five urns and two fountains, a coach house and stables. Sheep and deer are tended to on grounds behind a variously arc-shaped and straight ha-ha wall. As famous as the Grade II* listed house, its park is one of the few that are Grade I listed.

Due to the estate being placed on the property market, the agency acting on behalf of the owner required numerous repairs to be carried out on the estate. This included the majority of the buildings and lodges within the grounds.  The brickwork, facades, steps and coats of arms were in a state of disrepair and required sympathetic restoration.

SK Conservation carried out restoration and repairs to all the buildings within the park including the main house, stable block and lodges.  The work involved carrying out sympathetic stone repairs, lime rendering, pointing, stone indents, lime washing. Reuse and repair salvaged stone and repairs to coat of arms.
