The team from Rainton Construction are this week carrying out a brick reclamation exercise in the sunshine at the Walled Garden, Auckland Castle as part of the Auckland Castle Project.
Rainton Construction began preliminary works on the Walled Garden, Auckland Castle in December 2017. Created by Bishop Cosin in the 17th century, the Walled Garden at Auckland Castle was one of the first of its kind in North East England.
Using pioneering techniques it featured heated walls and innovative glass hothouses to grow vegetables, flowers, fruit and even pineapples, for the Bishop’s guests. Following this tradition, produce grown in the redeveloped garden will be used within The Auckland Project's restaurants.
The bricks will be separated by hand, collected, stored and reused on the project which will be completed in 2019
