Hopwood DePree and his team have been making significant progress over the winter months to complete critical structural and roof repairs at Hopwood Hall Estate.
Thieves managed to get onto the roof of the hall and ripped out valuable pieces of lead. This allowed water to pour through the building, causing expensive and timely damage.
Rainfall from over the last few months also led to the top of the roof being flooded, with Hopwood describing it “like a river up there.”
Hopwood partnered up with RossLee construction to repair the damage as quickly as they could. It is unclear how the vandals were able to get onto the roof in the first place. Work continues to be done to make the building as weathertight as possible.
