Chimney Pot Park, Langworthy, Salford

Client: Salford City Council, English Partnerships
Architect: Shedkm
Developer: Urban Splash
Type of works: supply of Cupa 5 tiles.

In Langworthy, Greater Manchester, architects Shedkm and award winning developers Urban Splash, in partnership with Salford City Council and English Partnerships, took on the regeneration of 349 terraced houses in an area that had suffered from long-term under-investment. The reconfigured Victorian properties were designed to address the needs of modern living, turning an area of dereliction back into a community.

Project architects Shedkm commented: “Cupa Natural Slate was used as the roofing material of choice for the entire scheme, complementing the cleaned up original brickwork and modern chimney rooflights.”

Langworthy as a community is constantly growing with a church, community centre and park being developed alongside Chimney Pot Park. The area will continue with its multi-million pound revamp thanks to Salford City Council, English Partnerships and the government’s National Regeneration Agency.

The slate specified and used on this project was Cupa 5 slate. It is a pale Grey slate with a riven surface and can be split to a thickness of 5mm and to differing formats including; square, rectangular, rounded and rustic. Natural slate of this kind is exceptionally durable as well as being waterproof, environmentally friendly and maintenance free, making this the most suitable choice for a housing development of this nature.
