Over the last 15 years the National Trust at Studland has been a big part of Poultons’ winter work.
This has included a number of beach huts we have replaced in many challenging positions across the site, all with the same specification; a heavy duty frame work, ex 19 x 125 Shiplap Tongue and Groove with an oil based treatment and some with Onduline roofs. Many of them have an up and over shutter with different doors and window configurations.
Over the years, Poultons have looked at ways to improve the products, and now every building produced gets Framed Ledged Braced doors and a heavy duty “GateMate” lock as standard, to withstand the coastal weather.
Poultons have also undertaken many different projects for the National Trust at Studland and other locations.
We have made:
- two ticket offices
- an Information Hut
- a Catering Hut
- an Ice Cream Retail Unit
and most recently
- a Otter Hide.
Other locations and projects include:
- a ticket office at Hardys Cottage
- a Ticket Offices at Holt
- an Information Hut at Burton Bradstock
- a Store/Bin Store and Waiting Shelter for the Ferry Terminal at Sandbanks for the Brownsea Island Ferry
When undertaking building projects for the National Trust, it is important that they blend in to their surroundings. Therefore, Poultons go to great trouble to ensure that the materials used, and the design and style of the building, help to achieve this.
