AHC was approached by the National Trust to carry out an Architectural
and Historical Appraisal of the Orangery at Montacute House, Somerset,
within the context of the North Garden and the wider landscape. The
existing roof had failed and historic information, such as the date of
origin of the building and the original configuration of the roof, was
rerquired. Following archival research, AHC provided a
comprehensive history of the building that informed an application for
listed building consent to repair the roof.
