Rooftop walkway closed as house reappears from under 41 miles of scaffolding

Our walkway which delighted thousands of visitors during a £5.4m roof project closed in February 2018 so that the scaffolding could come down. To everyone who joined us on the walkway and supported the project, we give our heartfelt thanks for helping us rescue The Vyne for ever, for everyone.

This article was about The Vyne’s rooftop walkway which gave over 140,000 visitors the exclusive chance to watch a £5.4m roof conservation project as it took place from March 2017 to February 2018. The walkway has now closed and the house has re-emerged from under 41 miles of scaffolding. A new layout is to be unveiled in the house from September 2018.

Below, timelapse footage shows the roof struts of the scaffolding being lifted into place in February 2017. The second timelapse video shows the Tudor chapel roof being stripped after ecologists confirmed that a maternity roost of bats had moved on from September 2017. The third timelapse video shows tiles being fitted onto the Tudor Oak Gallery roof in May 2017. For more videos, check out our YouTube channel.
