The Kicking Dickey, Dunmow


We recently completed the refurbishment of this traditional country pub in the heart of Essex. The project included removal of a large 3 storey chimney running through the centre of the bar, which was structurally un-safe. However, as the building is listed, the chimney had to remain visible externally, and so we added steelwork to the roof structure in order to re-distribute the load to allow the external section to remain. Once this part of the project had been completed, we were able to begin the total refurbishment of the bar area - in total the pub was closed for two weeks.
