Binham Priory

The roof on the North side of Binham Priory is easily accessible and the building is located in a particularly isolated area.

A lead roof would have acted like a magnet to thieves, so the client opted for another material - VM zinc - that would not only be in sympathy with the building but would also be the nearest colour match to the original.

Formed on site using our specialist equipment, ALR were able to produce the gentle radius to the roof without the delay of off-site curving found with the more industrial zip seam roofs
