The National Trust - Speke Hall / Home Farm


Glyn Nuttall Ltd. were given the project to refurbish and electrify the main chandelier and the two wall mounted fittings which in victorious times illuminated The Great hall at Speke Hall, Liverpool.

Work undertaken

The work involved sourcing lamp holders, flexes and lamps which were keeping the fittings. In all it took two electricians 40 man hours to wire the fittings which were last hung in The Great Hall in 1943. Due to lack of access, as the hall is oak panelled, Glyn Nuttall Ltd. was innovative in providing switching and dimming of the units by remote control, with the unit mounted in the ceiling void. The project attracted local and national media reviews and Glyn Nuttall Ltd. were praised by The National Trust for their sensitivity for the nature of the work and for their experience and professionalism.

Situated in the unusual setting on the banks of the river Mersey Speke Hall is a wood framed waffle and daub Tudor Manor house. Construction of the current building being 1530 and is classed as one of the finest serving examples of its kind in the country.
