Flint Town Hall

Flintshire

Donald Insall Associates was appointed in 2015 to carry out repairs on the prominent 19th century Flint Town Hall, a Tudor Gothic landmark designed by local architect John Welsh. The building’s masonry, a mix of dressed and rubble sandstone, had badly deteriorated, particularly on the south-west façade, and the turrets where providing continued challenges to maintenance through water ingress and vegetation growth. Part-funded by a Townscape Heritage Initiative as one of the three priority projects, the scope of works included extensive stone repairs; complete repointing; repairs and replacement of lead work on the roof; repairs and redecoration of fenestration, including two new replacement cast-iron windows on the ground floor; three new oak entrance doors; new entrance steps; reroofing and consolidation of masonry on the large south-east turrets.

Our completed work enables the long-term safeguarding the fabric of the town hall and its related heritage value, while at the same improving the visual appearance through selected reinstatement of lost features and redecoration.
