Case Study: Gwaunfa

The first “re-limed” house in Newport on the North Pembrokeshire coast. This area had suffered particularly savagely from the scraping of lime coverings which so horrified SPAB’s founder William Morris in the late 19th Century. Gwaunfa was a damp and unhealthy house whose stone walls had been “exposed” and cement pointed. The cement was removed and replaced with lime mortar, the rear rendered with lime and the interior lime plastered and limewashed with a wide variety of natural pigments.
