Conservation roof repair Long Mill Derbyshire

Conservation roof repairs to Long Mill, Darley Abbey Mills World Heritage Site

Roof and fabric repairs  are underway on the c.1790’s Grade I Listed Long Mill at Darley Abbey Mills World Heritage Site, Derby. The 228 year old roof timbers and lath & plaster ceiling soffit is in fantastic condition for their age! A temporary roof and internal propping ensuring proper protection during the works being carried out has been constructed by Nottingham-based Bonsers Building Restoration and Conservation Ltd.

The historic cotton spinning mill buildings within the Darley Abbey Mills ‘complex’, located to the north of Derby city centre, beside the River Derwent have been refurbished providing high quality office accommodation. The mills form part of a complete collection of surviving buildings representing an important part of Derbyshire’s industrial architectural history and a key component of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
