MAA surveys begin on site at Leith Hill Place

The south elevation of Leith Hill Place Mansion was clad in a thin layer of Portland stone as part of its 18th Century transformation into a Palladian building. Beneath this cladding is a mixture of Bargate Stone (to first and second floor) and brickwork (to the raised pavilion elevations and at the upper parts of the central range).

The north elevation, as well as the top floors to the pavilion south elevations, are currently rendered with a harled finish. Various patches of different phases of repair are visible on the elevation, as are remnants of a paint finish/surface coating.

The historic Mansion is open by the National Trust to the public from 1st April to 30th October on Fridays to Sundays and Bank Holidays between the hours of 11am to 4.30pm.
