Set in the midst of the Northumberland countryside near Belford, Middleton Hall is surrounded by 30 acres of woodlands, lakes, wildlife and many other historic buildings. Dating back to 1857 this Grade II listed mansion has withstood many challenges in its lifetime. Following a fire in the early 19th century the Hall was rebuilt using materials from nearby Haggerston Castle and it once nursed naval officers when used as a convalescent home by the Greenwich Hospital Trust.
In 2006, Middleton Hall was very thoughtfully restored by its then current owners, and in keeping with the original Baronial style of the building. The challenge then was to select materials that would complement the heritage building yet deliver on cost effectiveness, longevity and aesthetics. When it came to a replacing the cost effective heritage rainwater system that was guaranteed to last another lifetime, the Cascade Cast Iron Style System proved to be the perfect solution, combining the aesthetic charms of traditional cast iron with all the benefits of a modern material. The 105mm downpipe system and a matching 110mm push-fit soil system were installed and were in keeping with the traditional style of this building. At the time the property was described as ‘classically historic yet tastefully contemporary’.
Today, the Cascade cast iron style rainwater and soil systems continues to add to the charm of this 17th century country mansion which now accommodates up to 24 guests and is a popular wedding venue.
