Forty Hall, Enfield

Our Conservation Management Plan (2007) for the Council’s grade I listed Carolean house and its grade II registered park formed the basis of a major HLF-funded conservation programme, successfully completed in 2012. We have subsequently revised the Conservation Plan, and we are currently providing advice on the restoration of the park and ancillary buildings.

West Berkshire Museum, Newbury

We prepared a Conservation Management Plan for the museum, for West Berkshire Council. The Museum is housed in two historic buildings on the wharf of the Kennet and Avon canal: an early 17th century cloth hall (listed grade I) and an early 18th century corn store (listed grade II*). This formed the basis for a project to replace the 20th century building between them, which is now (2013) being implemented with grant from HLF.

Rainham Hall, LB Havering

This small mansion, built for a local ship-owner and merchant in the early eighteenth century, remained almost untouched until it came to the National Trust in 1949. We produced a conservation management plan (including a detailed measured and photographic survey) to support the Trust in repairing the house and opening it regularly to the public.

Belmont, Lyme Regis

This remarkable house, rebuilt c1780, was the seaside home of Eleanor Coade, manufacturer of Coade Stone. Much altered in the 19th century, it later belonged to the writer John Fowles. After its acquisition by the Landmark Trust, we undertook detailed research into its history and fabric and produced a Conservation Management Plan. The Trust is currently using the plan as the basis of repairing and reinstating the house to its 18th century form, before returning it to its original use as a holiday villa.

Claremont Fan Court School

We completed a Conservation Management Plan for the grade I listed house and registered historic landscape (with Kim Wilkie Associates) in 2005, liaising with the National Trust (who own and manage the adjoining former Pleasure Grounds), and subsequently prepared a detailed gazetteer for the historic buildings (2007). We have recently contributed the historic environment chapter to an Environmental Statement in support of the school's development masterplan.
