Restoration of the Ledbury Master’s House commenced in 2012 and is due for completion this summer. Painstaking work to repair the beautiful structural timbers, some of which are over 400 years old, is almost complete. Works have been taking place inside a huge scaffold tent erected over the entire building, though this veil is due to be removed soon. More information, including a project blog with some very interesting photos of the process, can be found at:

The Worcestershire Society of Chartered Architects arranged an exclusive visit, guided by the Architect from Butler Hegarty and Site Manager from Speller Metcalfe, the Contractor who has been responsible for the delivery of the project. This was a fantastic opportunity to find out about the restoration process that has been taking place, and explore this gem of a project!

Speller Metcalfe kindly sponsored the visit, so there was no charge.
