One of our proudest moments

A royal floor that changes colour throughout the day


Heritage Wood Floors were commissioned to install wide solid European oak boards at Crawley Grange. Built in the 16th century for Cardinal Wolsey and reputedly visited by heir to the throne Elisabeth Tudor.

The boards themselves are befitting such a wonderful property. With lengths over 6 metres long and 14 inches wide these character grade boards have been screwed to the existing bearers and then the screw holes plugged with oak dowels. The timber was then sanded and finished with several thin coats of Hard Wax Oil and gently polished to a soft delicate sheen.

It is worth mentioning that the colour of the floor changes through out the day from light oak to a very rich deep oak as the natural light diminishes.
