Temple Greenhouse

Temple Greenhouse, Croome Court (National Trust)

Carlton Smith completed a prestigious job replacing the original sash windows in the Temple Greenhouse at Croome Court, Worcestershire.

The only evidence of the existence of these sash windows was a photograph and some holes in the stone floor. Working with the architect, John Goom and his team, the windows were designed using joinery details contemporary with the time of the installation of the original windows. Wherever possible materials were used that would have been used in 1763 when John Hobcraft manufactured and installed them. The cost at that time was £84!

The windows are 4.65m high x 2.1m wide and are the largest ones Carlton Smith have manufactured.
