LONGDEN - Historic Buildings Put Their Trust In Longden

The National Trust works to preserve and protect the buildings, countryside and coastline of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Trust actively encourages everyone to visit and enjoy the British national heritage which includes more than 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments.

Longden have supplied numerous solid timber panelled doorsets to the recent restorations of six National Trust buildings. Hardwick Hall in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Threave House, Dumfries and Galloway, Nostell Priory, West Yorkshire, Robert Burns Museum in Alloway, The National Trust Office in Grasmere, Cumbria and the Sudbury Hall Tea Rooms, Derbyshire have all benefited from Longden’s approach to conservation and its expertise in replicating original features and traditional craftsmanship.

Vertically boarded doorsets in American White Oak were supplied for Hardwick Hall; the remaining doorsets were all sheraton flat panel in Sussex 4-panel, York 3-panel and Dorchester 2-panel styles. All meeting performance characteristic of 30 minutes fire resistance.

Longden has been manufacturing bespoke, solid timber doors for well over a hundred years which are particularly suited to the restoration and renovation of historic and traditional buildings of all types where minimal intervention and the retention of as much of the existing fabric as possible is vitally important, which is why Longden doors have been used extensively in notable monuments and listed buildings throughout the country.

Longden’s combination of traditional craftsmanship, specialist conservation experience and an innovative, highly engineered approach to detailed design and construction is widely recognised by conservation experts and organisations such as English Heritage and the National Trust.

Doors can be manufactured to match existing doors perfectly; Longden use solid timber stiles, rails and muntins and doors are constructed using long-established methods such as through mortice and tenon wedged joints. Both raised and fielded panel designs can be combined with moulded rails, stiles and muntins, applied mouldings and other fine detailing. Styles such as boarded doors or glazed doors and screens can be made as well as matching products such as windows, panelling for soffits and reveals, skirting’s and dados. Performance is not compromised by design and Longden doors meet all modern performance requirements for fire, smoke and acoustics.
