All our employees on the Eaton Estate came together after two years of disruption caused by the pandemic for a unique event to reconnect with each other, re-engage with the organisation and to celebrate the breadth of our activities.
As part of the day, our people stepped back in time to visit the sensitive refurbishment of a 17th century thatched cottage in Aldford, one of the oldest properties on the Eaton Estate, where they learned how teams from across the rural estates have come together to support its conservation.
Grosvenor’s expert craftspeople demonstrated their wide range of traditional skills which have been implemented to restore the Grade 2 listed home, such as lime mortaring, stone masonry and joinery as well as learning about the sensitive and sustainable improvements to the property, including the use of oak timbers sourced from estate woodlands, recycled glass aggregate and hemp lime plaster.
