The grand manor house in Stockport is a Grade 1 listed building constructed of timber framing the oldest parts of which date from the 14th Century. Stockport MBC were aware of structural problems with the brick chimney at one end of the building but when this worsened Atkinson Peck were commissioned to investigate and develop a remedial work scheme.

Under the scrutiny of English Heritage Atkinson Peck devised a piled underpinning and remedial tying scheme together with a system to allow the chimney to be jacked back into position therefore restoring the original aesthetics. Both the remedial works and jacking were successfully completed.
