The team at MJO Roofing have been busy this summer, replacing the lead roofing on the 16th Century Bruce Castle, in Tottenham. With temperatures reaching over 30c, our team had an interesting challenge on their hands!

Bruce Castle is a Grade I listed, 16th Century building, that is known to be one of the oldest surviving English brick houses. The name of the building refers to the Bruce family, who owned a third of the manor of Tottenham. Aside from this, Bruce Castle was home to many other notable people, including Sir William Compton - Groom of the Stool to Henry VIII, Richard Sackville the 3rd Earl of Dorset and the Hare family to name a few.

Bruce Castle was in use as a school from 1827 until 1891, when it was purchased by Tottenham Council. In the following year the grounds were opened, and Bruce Castle became the first public park in Tottenham. Since 1906, Bruce Castle has been a museum, bringing the social history of the area to life.

The museum is free to enter and displays a permanent exhibition of the past, present and future of Haringey.

Here at MJO Roofing we are honoured to have been involved with the preservation of the 16th Century Bruce Castle and we would like to say a big thank you to our operatives Rob and Tom, who done an amazing job with the project, despite the intense heat!
