Victorian roofs traditionally look like a very large triangle with the sides made from timber rafters propped up against each other. At the base, the rafter feet are joined together by the ceiling joists, which all rest on the walls below.
In order to prevent the roof slopes from sagging, extra support is often provided by thick timber beams that run from one end of the roof to the other. In some of the larger Victorian properties that have attic rooms, the roofs were built with beams known as queen posts, which are simple constructions of two upright posts with a crossbar for added strength.
If you have a Victorian property and require the very finest handmade clay roof tiles to maintain the true Victorian aesthetic, the Victorian roof tile from Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd is the perfect choice for you.
Very few traces of the ancient British and Roman periods have survived in Surrey. There are a number of round barrows and bell barrows in various locations, mostly dating to the Bronze Age. Remains of Iron Age hillforts exist at Holmbury Hill, Hascombe Hill, Anstiebury, Dry Hill, St Anns Hill and St Georges Hill. Most of these sites were created in the 1st century BC and many were re occupied during the middle of the 1st century AD. Only fragments of Stane Street and Ermine Street, the Roman roads which crossed the county still remain today.
Anglo-Saxon elements survive in a number of Surrey churches, notably at Guildfords St Mary, Godalmings St Peter and St Paul, Stoke D'Abernons St Mary, Thursley, Witley, Compton and Albury in Old Albury.
Many medieval churches exist in Surrey, but the counties parish churches are typically relatively small and simple, and experienced particularly widespread destruction and remodelling of their form in the course of Victorian restoration. Important medieval church interiors survive at Chaldon, Lingfield, Stoke D'Abernon, Compton and Dunsfold. Large monastic churches fell into ruin after their institutions were dissolved, although fragments of Waverley Abbey and Newark Priory survive. Southwark Priory, no longer in Surrey has survived, though much altered, and is now Southwark Cathedral. Farnham Castle largely retains its medieval structure, while the keep and fragments of the curtain walls and palace buildings survive at Guildford Castle.
Very little non military secular architecture survives in Surrey from earlier than the 15th century. Wholly or partially surviving houses and barns from that century, with considerable later modifications, include those at Bletchingley, Littleton, East Horsley, Ewhurst, Dockenfield, Lingfield, Limpsfield, Oxted, Crowhurst, Haslemere and Old Surrey Hall.
Major examples of 16th century architecture include the grand mid century country houses of Loseley Park and Sutton Place and the old building of the Royal Grammar School, Guildford, founded in 1509. A considerable number of smaller houses and public houses of the 16th century are also still standing. Abbots Hospital, founded in 1619, is a grand edifice built in the Tudor style, despite its date. More characteristic examples of major 17th century building include West Horsley Place, Slyfield Manor, and the Guildhall in Guildford.
