A revival with transformative opportunities for all
Incrementally developed by the Calverley family from the 12th century onwards, Calverley Old Hall is awe-inspiring in scale and yet has been largely near derelict in internal condition. Our imaginative and environmentally sustainable scheme by Cowper Griffith Architects is fusing the conservation of medieval fabric with contemporary design. We’re thrilled to be working with Ilkley-based contractors Dobson Construction and that, on completion, the project will bring Calverley Old Hall off the Heritage At Risk Register, safeguarding it for future generations.
At the heart of Calverley’s restoration is a series of activities and opportunities, including the sharing of traditional craft skills with volunteers, trainees, and apprentices. Coming at a time of instability and uncertainty in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, the project is providing stepping-stones for a new generation of heritage specialists, including through accredited training and meaningful work experience placements. Running throughout is a vibrant programme of open days and creative activities enabling people from all backgrounds to get involved.
