Seaton Delaval Hall is a Grade I listed country house in Northumberland, England. It is near the coast just north of Newcastle upon Tyne. Located between Seaton Sluice and Seaton Delaval, it was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh in 1718 for Admiral George Delaval and is now owned by the National Trust.
Peter Cox were contracted to carry out resin repairs to beam bearing ends which were suffering from varying degrees of wet rot. The beams were made of Douglas Fir and the timber replacement sections were made up with Douglas Fir to match the existing at the behest of English Heritage.
The repairs were closely monitored by English Heritage throughout the contract. Where beam ends were found to be sound, these were injected with fungicidal paste to prolong their life span.
