This 'at risk' early-17th century farmhouse in a suburb of Gloucester has been empty for some time. Our Buildings at Risk Officer, Laura Polglase investigates.
News - Casework
In October we received our first application relating to a listed building to be demolished for HS2. This was a Grade II listed farm near Banbury. Unfortunately, under the High Speed Rail Act 2017, which modified the controls related to listed buildings, we have little or no scope for objection. We deeply regret the demolitions necessitated by the construction of HS2.
Standing neglected in the centre of a complex of disused and decaying moats, this Grade II* building is an important example of an early brick manor farmhouse.
We wrote a comprehensive letter of advice strongly objecting to a number of key aspects of major re-ordering of this medieval church, notably raising and covering the beautiful historic floor to install underfloor heating and create level access.
This Grade II listed water mill on the River Test was devastated by fire in 2018. We commented on detailed plans for its repair and were delighted that traditional techniques and materials would be used and that a team of highly skilled craftspeople have been involved.
Help us campaign for this 'at risk' building in Newport Pagnell to have the protection it deserves
