Hello and welcome to the BlogSpot for the restoration of the Ledbury Master’s House. The aim of this blog is to keep those interested in the project up-to-date with the current progress on-site. We invite you to contribute and share with us your thoughts about the project progress. The blog also aims to provide you with more detail about the project and introduce you to those involved with the design & construction work for the project.
The end of 2012 saw a flurry
of activity associated with the Master’s House.At the beginning of December the Project Team submitted its application
to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant of over a £1 million to help secure
the future of the building.The Grant
application is for monies towards both the restoration works and for a range of heritage activities and interpretation telling the story of the building as part of a medieval hospital complex.
At the end of December, Listed
Building Consent was granted to Herefordshire Council for the proposed works at
the Master’s House. Early in the New Year the Project
Team will be submitting another bid for funding, this time to English
Heritage, for help with the costs of refurbishment.
We will be notified of a decision by the Heritage Lottery Fund in early March 2013.
