​Highfield’s main homestead at the Highfield Historic Site in Stanley now has a new roof after works wrapped up at the site.

The roof replacement works were delivered by Tasmanian company Leigh Thomson Constructions who was awarded the contract to deliver the $200,000 project, funded primarily through the Tasmanian Government’s Maintenance Boost program.

Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) Projects, Assets and Procurement Manager Jethro Bangay said he was pleased to see the project reach completion.

“The works involved the replacement of all the corrugated iron roofing at the main homestead, this also included the associated guttering, flashing and bird nest exclusion barriers,” he said.

“Highfield’s main homestead is now better protected from the weather while ensuring the historic building underneath is preserved from potential leaks and water damage.”

Highfield Historic Site, faithfully restored and conserved by the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service over many years, offers visitors an insight into the early colonisation of Tasmania and features the North West’s Van Diemen's Land Company.
