We carry out residential structural surveys and commercial surveys in Barnard Castle. Barnard Castle is a town which is situated in Durham.
Barnard Castle is a town in County Durham situated about 25 miles south/west of the City of Durham, 16 miles to the west of Darlington and about 50 miles from the heart of the Lake District. You can reach it from the north via the A688, from the south via the A1 and from the east and west via the A66. It lies beside the River Tees and is ranked amongst one of the top 50 most historically and architecturally important towns in Britain with its unique and colourful history that dates back to the Roman era and beyond. The town is named after the 12th century castle, which was built on a high bank overlooking the River Tees this was home to many famous people from history such as Richard III and Henry VII.
The town is and has been for many years a market town with one held every Wednesday in Market Place, an old cobbled area headed by an octagonal building called Market Cross. This building has had many uses over the years from a butter mart, a fire station, a court house to the means of settling a bet between two snipers, the story is that two men, Taylor (a local) and Cruddas (a game keeper for the Earl of Strathmore) bet each other that they were a better marksman. They fired at the weather vane on Markets Cross each leaving a bullet hole so therefore proving that they were as good as each other, the holes are still there today. As surveyors we enjoy providing surveys, property reports and home buyer reports for the residents and businesses within this area.
Bernard Castle has four main streets, or gates, these are Galgate, Bridgegate, Newgate and Thorngate each lined with beautiful stone built houses giving it a typical “Dale's town” appearance. It is home to the famous Bowes Museum, a French chateau style building that opened in 1892 and houses an art collection that comprises of a fine collection of art works from 1400 to 1875. The collection consists of mainly French artists but also some Spanish, Italian and Northern European artists. Along with its fine antique shops and famous restaurants it is also an administrative centre for this area.

This ensures that you get expert advice on any issues that we may find with the property we are surveying.

All our survey contain lots of images, clearly showing any problems that we have identified at the property such as woodworm, rising damp or cracking to the walls. We also use sketches in our survey which are aimed at helping you to understand how certain areas are constructed or to help show more clearly a problem that we have identified. You will also find lots of definitions of any building terminology that we may use in our survey, as we firmly believe in 'Plain English' and really want you to fully understand what we are saying in the survey report.
