Project: Townhead - Structural Services
Refurbishment & Conservation - Grade II Listed Country House
Client: Mr Staples
Location: Slaidburn - Lancashire
Value: £2 Million
Townhead is a Grade II* listed country house located on the outskirts of Slaidburn in Lancashire which is on the English Heritage ‘Buildings at Risk Register’. The present house was constructed in the 1730’s after the original house dating back to the 17thcentury had been demolished.
Following detailed negotiations with English Heritage and the local authority, the proposals aimed to restore the main house, retaining all existing features. These include extensive panelling, with the service wing also restored but incorporating several contemporary elements sympathetically integrated with the original; enabling the history of the house to be read.
