Roofs built during the Victorian era were almost exclusively made from slate, which made them somewhat different from houses built previously. Today however, when refurbished, the clay roof tile is often used and the Victorian roof tile from Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd is a firm favourite with many builders and roofers alike.

The Victorian roof was often decorated with small ornate carved ornaments on the gable ends and the ridge where the two sloping sides of the roof joined. Ridge tiles made from terracotta were also added to make the roofs of Victorian houses even more appealing to the eye.

Victorian roof tile and wooden beams for that traditional Victorian look

Aged wooden panels were frequently incorporated into the gable ends of Victorian roofs. This was to make the roof one of the most attractive and eye catching parts of the house. Even today, these wooden beams used in conjunction with a quality Victorian roof tile will still catch the attention of passers by.

The Victorians really knew a thing or two about design and the beauty of their houses, particularly the roofs is something that we are able to replicate today with the gorgeous Victorian roof tile from Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd.

A little information about Surrey

Historic architecture and monuments

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.

Churches from the medieval period

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.

16th century architecture

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.
