Abstract

Development and Regeneration Excellence (Northern) Ltd (DARE) are redeveloping Axwell Hall, a Grade II* listed Palladian mansion (IoE No. 303771), located near Blaydon, Gateshead, Tyne and Wear (NZ 1911 6204). Following a request by the Tyne and Wear archaeologist, a programme of building investigation (OA North 2004), and an archaeological landscape survey of the walled gardens (OA North 2007) was undertaken. Subsequently, a watching brief was maintained during structural works from October 2006, to be followed by a detailed survey of the roof of the Hall in January and April 2007. This report outlines the results from the roof
survey and watching brief.
The roof was in a poor state of repair, with frequent and prolonged ingress of water having irreparably damaged some of the constituent timbers. This process, however, does not appear to have been confined to the more recent history of the Hall, as several major episodes of repair were observed.
