We were recently consulted about works to repair the Grade II* listed almshouses in Cornwall. We were impressed by the detailed and comprehensive application.
It's Remember a Charity week so we're spotlighting the work that has been made possible by gifts in wills in 2021. This year we began repairs to Kibworth Harcourt post mill, the last of its kind in Leicestershire. Thanks to a gift in a will we are able to bring this mill back into use.
Our famous Repair of Old Buildings Course, an intensive introduction to conservation, returns this autumn.
We are deeply saddened to learn of the proposed demolition of this Grade II listed late-17th century farmhouse, stables and outbuildings under proposals for the High-Speed Rail 2 scheme. Unfortunately, under the High Speed Rail Act 2017, which modified the controls related to listed buildings, we have little or no scope for objection. No matter how well this is recorded, a historic building is irreplaceable.
