Clay roof tiles have always been the perfect way to cover your roof. They keep the elements at bay and are a natural product. The longevity of good quality clay roof tiles is superb and they always look the part, enhancing the look of any property.
clay roof tiles from Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd are the perfect choice where the many benefits of a new clay tile is needed but with the great looks of a natural product that will only look better over the passage of time.
The textured finish will encourage lichen, thus speading up the weathering process without diminishing the strength or longevity of the product. This also helps the clay roof tiles to blend into the natural surroundings of the property. This is even more noticeable when our clay roof tiles are used in more rural settings where a weathered appearance is more desirable.
Our clay roof tiles really do have a wonderful character and are perfectly suited for use on projects such as barn conversions or mixing in with existing tiles on any other type of property.
Our clay roof tiles show a range of fantastic tones with subtle variation within each of our tiles. They can be used for new developments, just as much as the more traditional country properties.
Hampshire is a very popular county to live in as it is known for the beautiful scenery and historic figures, particularly those who wrote some of the best known literary works to date.
Hampshire is also a rather affluent county, in fact it is recognised as the most affluent county in the whole country. Hampshire has an unemployment rate lower than the national average. The Hampshire economy mainly comes from major companies, maritime, agriculture and tourism. Tourist attractions include many seaside resorts, the national parks and the Southampton Boat Show. The county is known as the home of the well known writers Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. Hampshire is also the childhood home of Florence Nightingale and the birthplace of engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
It has been argued that the most notable resident of Hampshire was the Duke of Wellington, who lived at Stratfield Saye House in the north of the county from 1817. A world famous Victorian, who became known as the lady with the lamp, returned home to Hampshire for her burial at East Wellow. She was better known as the nurse Florence Nightingale.
Florence Nightingale was an English social reformer, statistician and the founder of modern nursing. She came to prominence while serving as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, in which she organised care for wounded soldiers. She gave nursing a favourable reputation and became an icon of Victorian culture whilst making her rounds by lamp light to care for the wounded soldiers at night.
As stated above, Hampshire has many literary connections, and these include the birthplace of authors Jane Austen, Wilbert Awdry and Charles Dickens. Austen lived most of her life in Hampshire, where her father was rector of Steventon, and wrote all of her novels in the county.
