Keble College, Oxford University was founded in 1870 and is an outstanding example of Victorian Gothic built to the design of William Butterfield (1814-900).
The recent completion of the first phase of the restoration of the tiled Hall floor at Keble College, Oxford demonstrates an enlightened and practical approach to Grade 1 building restoration, in which specialist tile makers Craven Dunnill Jackfield played a key role.
Our key challenge was to make 4500 replacement tiles, perfectly colour matched to the remaining originals, in non-standard dimensions.
The issue of colour matching was critical given the Grade1 listed status of the Hall and the involvement of English Heritage and Oxford Council’s Conservation department.
