Fisherman’s Church

Channel 4’s programme; The Restoration Man, saw Jackie Robinson and Neil Worrell renovate the old abandoned St Peter’s church, located in the heart of the stunning fishing village of Brixham, into their first home together.

The church, which was built in 1874, had stood abandoned for 5 years so when Neil and Jackie found it, it was derelict, damp and dilapidated. Due to its poor condition, it also needed completely stripping out internally and full restoration throughout.

Three different types of ceramic tiles were used throughout the building, including four different styles and patterns of modern wall tiles for each of the four unique bathrooms. Victorian patterned clay floor tiles in decorative designs for the master bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area and off-white extra large Italian 1.2 metre square tiles throughout the ‘modernist’ basement area.

Norcros provided technical assistance in scheduling their requirements for tiling, substrate materials, grouts, silicone and waterproofing compounds. This was a highly complex specification as the tiling was done to a variety of substrates including plasterboard, chipboard, plywood, blockwork, concrete slabs and existing masonry walls. ‘’Norcros were very helpful technically and the products were subsequently delivered to the site quickly and efficiently’’ said Jackie.

With over 10 tonnes of ceramic tiles used within the finished project, Neil and Jackie are delighted with how they turned out on the finished build.
