The King's Head, formerly the Station Tavern, along with the Head of Steam are part of the frontage of Huddersfield Railway Station - a Grade 1 listed building.
The frontage was memorably described by the poet John Betjeman as the most splendid in England and by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as 'one of the best early railway stations in England'.
The King's Head was originally a first class waiting room. It is only in more recent times that the waiting rooms have become public houses.
Plasterwrx are proud to have co-ordinated with Health & Safety, First Trans Pennine Express and the pub owners in the recent rennovation works, which saw the false ceiling taken down and a fabulous rennovation to all decorative plasterwork. We provided a safe working area for loading and unloading of the platform throughout the project. The restoration work part funded with grants from the Railway Heritage Trust is estimated to have cost between £100,000 and £200,000.

Samples of our work can be seen at Bridlington Spa Theatre, a prestigious plastwork restoration project successfully carried out for Wates, a leading UK construction firm. We clay modelled the overdoor plasterwork, made moulds and remade and installed the overdoor decorations.
The top crest was fully re modeled back up in clay before replicating in plaster The main over door was modelled up in plaster with parts of the enrichment that went over the panelling in clay before making a replica silicone rubber mould to cast a one piece plaster overdoor. If you visit the Bridlington Spa you will find that there are three different sizes of overdoors all made and fitted by plasterwrx plasterers from the same master mould.

This shows how the mitres look before finish off with specialist tools||This picture shows how one side of the wall has a sloped ceiling and the cornice had to be made bigger on one side for the miter to joint in on a slope||A close up picture of the 2 different size cornices miterd together. This is an unusual room with a sloped ceiling requiring us to run 2 dirrerent sized insitu moulds and then running them together on the slope.|
