Lincoln Minster School

Type of works: Sandtoft's Arcadia tile used to restore roof of Grade II listed building.

The roof of an historic, Grade II listed building, owned by the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln Cathedral, has been sympathetically restored using Sandtoft’s Arcadia; a pantile that offers the appearance of an aged, reclaimed product.

The 18th century property is used by Lincoln Minster School and was in need of internal and external refurbishment. Carol Heidschuster, Works Manager at Lincoln Cathedral commented: “The original roof was hundreds of years’ old and had been leaking for some time, so needed to be replaced as part of the wider refurbishment of the property. The substantial size of the property meant that using reclaimed tiles was not an option as it was impossible to find enough to cover the entire roof.

“We worked closely with Lincoln City Council to select the Arcadia, which was the closest match in terms of both style and colour to the original pantiles and proved the most viable alternative to using reclaimed products.”

Commenting on the restoration project, Sandtoft’s Sales and Marketing Director, Nick Oldridge added: “The Arcadia tile has an authentic weathered appearance with a textured surface and completely random finish. It delivers all the charm and aesthetics of an aged, reclaimed product without the hassle and associated cost of sourcing second-hand materials.”

The Arcadia is made from colour permanent natural clay ensuring a highly aesthetic roof that is guaranteed for 60 years.
