The development of a viable business case, Heritage Lottery Funding support and the restoration and conversion of a Grade II* listed monastery into a conference and events venue
To save the Grade II* listed church and Franciscan friary from falling into further disrepair, to safeguard its future and to help regenerate the surrounding area by creating a vibrant events and conference venue.
We worked very closely with the Trust, guiding them through several attempts to establish a viable scheme that qualified for public and lottery funding. We were then appointed as project managers for the delivery of the project.
After falling into disrepair, the church and Friary were placed on the World Monument Fund’s schedule of the 100 most endangered sites in the world.
