Work Begins on Historic Walled Garden
4 December 2017
A County Durham construction company is laying down roots for the restoration of Auckland Castle's 17th century Walled Garden.
Workers are now on site, clearing rubble, preserving and storing historically significant stonework, and preparing access routes to allow for further works to commence in the new year.
The work currently being undertaken by Rainton Construction will run until February 2018 and is the first phase of The Auckland Project’s plans to reimagine the garden as it would have been hundreds of years ago.
Following the initial phase of works, Rainton Construction will be working on site during 2018, completing a complex earth removal exercise, insitu reinforced concrete retaining structures, as well as works to all the Grade 1 listed walls and new pedestrian access ways involving extensive paving.
