Harvington Hall

Harvington Hall

The repair and conservation of a 17th Century Grade II listed malthouse by a firm of Lichfield architects has been shortlisted for a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Award.

Brownhill Hayward Brown carried out extensive repairs and converted the property, which is within the grounds of Harvington Hall in Worcestershire, to a teaching and visitor centre. The works were sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund and opened in 2009.

Andrew Hayward, director of Brownhill Hayward Brown said:

“This was a particularly important project for us, and we are delighted to have been shortlisted.”

The winners will be announced on May 19.

The scheme included upgrading facilities, improving access for the disabled, and restoring the ground floor of the adjacent Grade II Georgian chapel.

Harvington Hall is a Grade I-listed moated medieval and Elizabethan manor house which belongs to the Archdiocese of Birmingham and is renowned for its large number of priest holes.
