DJ Cooper Building Conservation in & around Swindon, Wiltshire
Although many people see Swindon as a huge, sprawlig metropolis, it is surrounded by delightful countryside and villages such as Hinton Parva, blessed with several picturesque thatched cottages and a Saxon church. On the edge of the village is the National Trust's 'The Coombes', where medieval strip lynchets are preserved in a steep-sided valley. These are evidence of the open fields farming practice of the day and were commonplace among the chalky hills of Wessex. The name comes from the Old English word "hilinc", meaning ridge or mound. The most commonly accepted reason for their use was that in the 13th and 14th century, communities were becoming over populated and land hungry, there wasn't enough easily farmed, low lying arable land to go round, so the hills were scarred with ridges to provide viable farming area where there previously was none. Other explanations are available, but we prefer that one. What we also prefer is to have zero lameness in cattle in the Swindon (or any other) area, so very often find ourselves visiting farms there to provide:
With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Swindon area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.
From removal of old paint for a domestic redecoration project, or the intricate cleaning of stone work in a cathedral using the poultice method, you will find that wherever you are in Swindon or Wiltshire, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper. Our number is shown above, or if you prefer to send us an email, simply click in the header of any page.
