Nearly fourteen years ago the National Trust of Guernsey were lucky enough to be able to buy Brockhurst for one golden guinea as a bequest from the late Florian Carr’s Estate. Brockhurst is a recognisable, important St Peter Port property and the restoration has been painstakingly planned, processed and enjoyed. The result – a superb and proud one for the heritage of Guernsey.
The property overlooks and commands a spectacular view of St. Peter Port and Jersey beyond. This impressive building was completely refurbished under the guidance of Stuart Pearce, from CCD Architects. Part of the project involved the treatment of the cellar walls as it was subject to dampness penetrating from the ground behind the walls.
Rocan Products recommended the application of Purebloc to the cleaned walls which quickly removed the offending dampness whilst still allowing the brick surface to remain as visually original as instructed.
