Chiltern Street


Wendover Court, originally named Wendover Buildings, was constructed between 1890 and 1900 by the Artisans, Labourers and General Dwellings Company, a philanthropic organisation which specialised in building for the working class. In order to offer the flats at the lowest possible rent, the company built them as associated flats, without internal bathrooms, however they were adorned externally with a somewhat grandiose style of architecture.

Rosewood were instructed to undertake extensive works on Chiltern Street, this included repairing noted cement failures throughout the main body of the building and previous brick repairs, a Thermatech clean, extensive in situ restoration work to the dentils, pediments and cornices and brick replacement. We also performed lead removal and replacement of all pediments, cappings and cornices.
