Hard Hat Tours of the Masters House - Saturday 26th May 2012
Residents and visitors to Ledbury will have seen that work on the Master’s House has been continuing apace over the last few months. The Customers Services Team have temporarily moved to the recently refurbished wing to enable stripping out of the rest of the building. This work will enable Herefordshire Council to do the preparatory work for the next stage, due to start in 2013, which will see the restoration of the Medieval Hall and kitchen.
The stripping out has meant that much of the medieval structure has now been exposed for the first time in many years and it is now possible to begin to understand what the building would have looked like when it was first built in the 15th Century.
Herefordshire Council is organising an open day, to enable residents and visitors to don a hard hat and have a look at some of the work that has been done to date and to see the stripped out Mediaeval Hall. Staff from Herefordshire Council, Volunteers and the builders, Speller Metcalfe Ltd, will be on site from the 2.00pm to 4.00pm on Saturday the 26th May to show visitors around the building. Entrance will be free but there will be an opportunity to make a donation to the St Michael’s Hospice Charity.
