PRIVATE RESIDENCE

PLYMOUTH HOE

After many years of neglect this grade II listed building, which is also a prominent landmark on Plymouth Esplanade, was restored to its former glory by F.H Crocker & Co in partnership with our parent company J.H. Lidstone (Plastering) Ltd. The external lime render was renewed where necessary and all of the existing architectural features were beautifully reinstated. Many of

the existing features were so badly eroded and weather-beaten that original master moulds had to be created from salvaged samples and by referring to the surviving original architect drawings. Four large decorative urns were reinstated to their lofty location - reproduced by referring to the only existing urn (which was also badly damaged), which had lain dormant in the courtyard.
