Our recent conservation work at Robin Hood's Cottage, which is part of the scheduled ancient monument of Kirkless Priory, has been recognised by the Civic Trust Awards. The project, which was made possible by the funding of Historic England, has won the AABC Conservation Award at the Highly Commended level. As the Main Contractor, Historic Property Restoration Ltd worked closely with the most highly skilled and qualified Design Team. This consisted of Wiles and Maguire Ltd (Conservation Architect), RST Consulting (Quantity Surveyor) and Blackett Ord Conservation (Sturctural Engineer), who we would like to recognise for helping to make this project such a successful one.
Prior to the conservation works, the building was in a ruinous state with the historic fabric shrouded in scaffolding. Had these works not been possible, the rich history of this building would have been lost forever. At HPR, awards such as this mean a great deal to us, as it recognises our unwavering commitment to maintaining and preserving the buildings and landmarks that represent so much to our country and our local communities.
