Our work

Scaffolding around the main building at Quebec House, a National Trust property in Kent

Conservation work in action; caring for our external walls

Over spring and early summer 2018 we carried out vital conservation work to our external walls to help protect our special place. Scaffolding was erected to help us reach the highest points of the building, so we could condition check our brick work, drains and roof. Click here to find out more about our work.

History at Quebec House 

The house's history is very varied since it was built in the 1500s, but most notably was the childhood home to General Wolfe - the house being renamed by the epic battle of Quebec in his honour.
