Red Quarry Tiles

Post by Phill123 » Tue 17th Nov, 2020 3:33 pm

Hi,

We have recently purchased a Welsh Georgian Farm house & are approaching everything with caution due to the fact it's Grade II listed (this is our second period property) and the fact their are many original features in the property which are listed on the CADW records.

What are peoples thoughts on the red quarry tiles in the reception?
I'm used to seeing this style in the scullery or similar. There's no mention of them on the listings details. Just don't feel it does the house justice...I'm also slightly cautious they could be sought after and desirable?

Without a proper look it's hard to say, but first thought from that picture is they're not very old. They don't look to be that well laid, and they are less worn and more even in colour than the original Victorian ones I've got in my kitchen. They're very common - take a look on Ebay. Depends where you are in Wales but they were made in vast quantities in Ruabon in times gone by.

If your house is listed, you will need consent before ripping a floor out.

They look original, beautiful and eminently practical.
Treasure them and leave well alone.
Or at worst cover them so others can appreciate them in future.
