Oak Shakes – Laverstoke Church
Some years ago we were approached by a Bavarian company to be their UK distributor of Oak roofing Shakes. These are all hand made in Bavaria by an old established company. They source the best Oak with straight grain to enable them to split cleanly.
We have been involved in supplying many projects that have used these shake, one of which is Laverstoke church in Hampshire.
The project was overseen by one of the most famous steeplejacks in the south of England – Peter Harknett. Our shake supplier holds Peter in such acclaim, that he has designed a thicker shake specifically for church spire work and named them the Peter Harknett Shingle ©.
