Madingley Hall is an elegant Grade I listed country house built by Sir John Hynde in 1543 and set in its own expansive gardens.

The hall is now owned by Cambridge University, and Action Wall Ties were engaged to undertake reinforcement works to stabilise the front bay of the building.

Over the years the Oriel bay had become detached from the main building. The internal walls of the bay were finished with oak panelling along with ornate plaster works, all of which were protected by listing in their own right.

Repairing The Detached Bay Window

A complicated cross stitch anchor was proposed to stabilise the bay and preserve the integrity of this historic building.

Cintec Sock anchors

Action Wall Ties’ operatives diamond drilled 30mm diameter holes approximately 3.8 metres in depth and a second hole, angled off approximately 1 metre, into the masonry to meet and form cross ties to each side of the bay window at five levels.

They then prepared for, supplied and inflated the Cintec sock anchors in accordance with the specifications and manufacture’s recommendations.

This work was completed by AWT Cintec certified operatives.
