Handmade Gault tiles now cover the new roof on the first floor extension at Ely Museum, specially aesthetically designed for the project by its architects HAT Projects. Made from Cambridgeshire clay, the same material used on many other buildings in the area, the unique tiling includes curved tiles and lines part of the facade of the building.
This new extension above the old Vernon Cross room joins the Grade II Old Gaol building and provides a large open hall which will be used for the community, and downstairs will be office space for the museum.
Whilst scaffolding is still up on the roof, it provides a lovely view for the team over to Ely Cathedral!
