St George’s Mansion was a former 19th century hospital called St George’s County Asylum. The grade II listed building was in disrepair following 20 years of neglect.

Shropshire Homes was keen to preserve the history of the hospital and maintain the Georgian architecture as part of its work to transform the hospital into one, two and three-bedroom apartments.


Shropshire Homes worked closely with Russell Roof Tiles, who has extensive experience in re-roofing and restoration projects.

The team supplied 20,000 of its Lothian tiles in Slate Grey. The cost-effective tiles were able to replicate the look of other natural slate tiles on the building, whilst providing the sustainable benefits of concrete.

The Lothian tiles form part of Russell Roof Tiles’ Natural Range – an expanding selection of thinner leading-edge interlocking concrete tiles. When laid, the tile gives the appearance of a small format tile with the commercial benefit of a larger format tile.
