In 2008, Charlton Farm, a project which used Sandtoft’s Gaelic clay roof tile was awarded ‘Best New-Build’ by the Clay Roof Tile
Council. The council refers to this project as a derelict farm which is now, thanks to the refurbishment, a sanctuary for children
with life-limiting illnesses and their families and an excellent example of a new build project working in harmony
with existing buildings.

Sandtoft Gaelic tiles were chosen because the natural clay used to manufacture these tiles has ensured that the roof of each building blends with the surrounding architecture.
