Heritage Conservation Brickwork
Born in Worcester in 1956, Mr Hobday attended St. Stephens Primary School, and progressed onto Worcester Royal Grammar School, leaving in 1973.
Entering into the construction industry, Mr. Hobday attended Worcester Technical College, obtaining City & Guilds Advanced Level qualification, and was awarded The Silver Trowel, later going on to lecture in brickwork at Worcester Technical College in the early 1990’s.
At this time, Mr. Hobday realized that very little, if nothing, was being taught to students regarding the use of Hydraulic Lime, and the use of traditional lime mortars in construction. It also became apparent that older buildings that had had repairs done to them in more modern cement mortars, were, in some instances, beginning to suffer quite badly.
He then decided to undertake to learn as much as possible himself, about lime mortars, and their uses, and proceeded to complete several CPD courses in Historic Brickwork, Rubbed, and Gauged Brickwork, Tuck Pointing, etc., at The Weald, and Downland Museum being taught by Dr. Gerard Lynch (theredmason.com), the internationally acknowledged historic brickwork consultant.
Mr. Hobday continues to pursue his CPD, and pass this knowledge onto others. He now specializes in working on listed, period, and historic buildings, using traditional materials, to produce results of the highest standard.
