The Bull

The Bull is a beautiful Grade II listed building, dating back to the 14th Century, lovingly restored by the Restore London team as part of the wider regeneration of Bracknell town centre.

Restore London were involved at the early project development stage and provided specialist surveys, budgets and advice to the team, developing the restoration scheme in close consultation with the Architect and other stakeholders. Exemplar panels and samples were produced by the Restore London craftsmen to ensure a sympathetic restoration scheme including detailed analysis of original materials to match existing. The RL package included restoration to internal and external areas, matching of original materials and styles, sourcing of reclaimed imperial bricks to be used where required coupled by render restoration using a traditional lime mortar.

In addition, Restore London were instructed to carry out a £50K brickwork stabilisation scheme to the town centre car park.
