Harvington Hall, Worcestershire

Harvington Hall, Worcestershire

Grade I listed Harvington Hall occupies a moated site including the original house, Malthouse Georgian Chapel and gardens. The Hall is predominantly from the sixteenth century and incorporates an earlier fourteenth century residence. It is renowned for containing the largest collection of intact "Priest Holes" in the country. Recent works by BHB Architects have included the RICS award winning conversion of the Malthouse funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

BHB undertake regular condition surveys of all buildings including the adjacent church, all under the ownership of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham. An ongoing programme of repairs is being undertaken to the hall. This has included fire compartment action of the attics, structural repair to rot in the floor of one of the principal rooms and various stages of external masonry repair. Sensitive alterations have in included a structural glass screen and installation of fitted furnishings.

The Malthouse project took a largely redundant building and repaired and sensitively altered it to form a visitors interpretation centre and school resource centre. The attic room was converted to house the Harvington archives whilst the original malting floor and furnace were consolidated and conserved.
