hi. I am about to start restoring a three storey Georgian stone town house and one of the jobs is to replace the ground floor first reception room with original Georgian floor boards. Currently the floor is concrete which is resulting in rising damp issues - this has to be removed obviously. Any tips on locating Georgian floor boards and any issues to avoid in laying them would be most helpful

Are you talking about reclaimed boards or brand new material?
If any original boards remain then take the section size, and their wood ID, and ask at timber suppliers - not sheds or building suppliers.
Heritage & Conservation groups will advise eg. The Georgian Society.

If the building is listed you should speak to a local conservation officer before doing anything else.
