Tyntesfield is a Grade I listed Victorian house with gardens near Wraxall, North Somerset now owned by the National Trust. We prepared a Feasibility Study for the restoration of the derelict boating lake.

The Victorian boating lake is one of the earliest known to be concrete lined and is an historic feature.

Drained in 1939, it remains dry, cracked and leaks.The water supply that comes from sources on higher ground and building roofs have largely been lost.

We led on preparing a Feasibility Study and business case on the options for its repair and re-use for boating whilst retaining its historic value and to provide year-round water supplies.

We undertook an historic assessment and assessed the landscape effects of different restoration options, including preparing visualisations.We partnered with Royal Haskoning DHV who studied the hydrology and water supply issues.
