Stationed at the edge of Chester city centre, stands Chester Castle. The history and importance of this location is perhaps no longer noticed by the hundreds of shoppers, tourists and businessmen who pass by its gates every day, but this building has played a pivotal role in the history of the UK.
Since the early 1990s, English Heritage has commissioned several phases of work to conserve and consolidate the original fabric and this project encompassed the Half Moon Tower and the Frobisher’s Workshop.
The Clive Engine House is one of only a few remaining buildings of its kind in Wales, constructed in 1862 to house a powerful 100-inch diameter cylinder engine, capable of pumping 2000 gallons of water every minute. Unfortunately for this engine house the mine it served closed in 1884 and the building was stripped out and left to the elements. Recclesia carried out extensive building conservation works, to rescue the remains of the historic structure.
Sitting at the heart of Caernarfon, North Wales, the Market Hall was built in 1832 by John Lloyd, architect of Caernarfon, as a corn market on the earlier site of an Elizabethan house called Plas Mawr. Recclesia were awarded a contract to complete extensive renovation works internally, and sensitive conservation and repair works externally, readying the building for its new use as a micro-brewery and event space.
