The Old Toll House refurbishment

    The Old Toll House, sitting on Clopton Bridge in Stratford-upon-Avon, was built over 200 years ago in 1814. Since the closure as a timber yard in 1991, the toll house stood unoccupied and subsequently fallen into serious disrepair. It was in the top ten West Midland’s Historic England’s Register of Buildings at Risk.

    The toll house was recovered by Stratford Historic Buildings Trust which received funding to refurbish and preserve the historic architecture of the building.

    Heritage building contractors Stone-Edge took on the task of restoring and refurbishing the Grade I Listed Toll House. Even after thorough refurbishment, the performance of the single glazed timber windows was deemed inadequate for modern requirements.

    To help find a solution, Stone-Edge and Mark Evans Architects approached Selectaglaze, the UK’s leading supplier of secondary glazing. After a positive meeting, Selectaglaze installed a total of 8 units on the ground and first floor of the Old Toll House. Selectaglaze Series 45 double side hung casement with matching gothic curved head was chosen.

    Project organiser Chris Rice has already experienced a remarkable transformation in the thermal and acoustic insulation within the historic Stratford landmark.

    “Fitting secondary glazing into a Grade I Listed building with lots of different sized windows was a big challenge. We are delighted with the finished product in terms of insulation and sympathetic appearance.”

    Established in 1966 and Royal Warrant Holder since 2004, Selectaglaze is the leading specialist in secondary glazing.
