Brief Description:
18th Century Farmhouse with attached rubble
barn, in a rural setting.


Summary:

Despite being occupied, the condition of the building had deteriorated due to lack of
maintenance. Repairs to the roof, removal of vegetation and general maintenance
have resulted in the building no longer meeting English Heritage's 'at risk' criteria.

Brief Description:
The original house dates from the late 15th
Century, but the Tudor Gothic facade was
constructed around 1835. It is one of the very few
examples of Gothic revival in Frome.

Summary:

This important listed building was added to the Register in 1993 in a very derelict
condition, having been largely vacant for some time. Early attempts to keep the
building wind and watertight had more or less failed, resulting in serious deterioration
of interior features. A scheme for the conversion of the building into 5 social housing
units was approved in 2000 and was grant aided under the Frome Townscape
Heritage Initiative. This included structural repairs, re-roofing, joinery repairs and
repairs to ornamental plasterwork. The work was finally completed in 2003.

Brief Description:
Dated 1875, this small octagonal building is a rare
survivor of its type. The interior, including a
pointed plaster dome on exposed rafters was
found to be mostly intact at the time of the last
survey.

Summary:

Listed Building Consent was granted in 2003 for the repair and conversion of this
listed building to an artists studio. The repairs were completed in 2004 and works
are underway on the second phase of the conversion which includes a single storey
extension for living accommodation.

Ownership:                   Private



Brief Description:
Built in the early 1800s with an interesting history
of usage. It is described by Kenneth Rogers, a
specialist author on the cloth industry, as “one of
the best surviving examples of a pre-factory
machine workshop in the area” for horse powered
or hand worked machinery. By the 1920s it was
used for the construction and repair of organs, and
then later as a feather factory. More recently it
has been used for the sale and display of wood
burning stoves and finally by Frome Reclamation.

Summary:

This former industrial building, which had been on the Register since 1993, won a
prestigious Somerset Building Preservation Trust Award in 2004 for its conversion
and innovative extension. The works were part funded by a grant from Mendip
District Council’s Townscape Heritage Initiative scheme which ran in partnership with
the Heritage Lottery Fund and English Heritage.

Brief Description:
Built around 1840, this field barn is an unusual
example of a farm building in the Gothic style. The
architectural features include Flemish bond red
brick, Y-tracery windows and an oval pitching eye
on one gable end. Its location, Bushy Coombe, is
designated as a Special Landscape Feature along
with Glastonbury Tor and Chalice Hill.

Summary:

This listed barn had lacked any beneficial use for many years and was vulnerable to
vandalism. The roof has been repaired and the vegetation growth removed.
Consent was granted for residential conversion in 2002 and works are underway.

Brief Description:
Country House in a large estate, which itself is a
Registered Historic Park and Garden (II*), built in a
combination of Chateau and Jacobean styles.
Constructed in 1857 by TH Wyatt for William
Duckworth the interior of the house has remained
largely unaltered.

Summary:

The listed building had fallen into a significant state of disrepair following the sale of
the estate in 1987. The building was not weather tight and dry rot had started to
advance. An application to convert the building into apartments was approved in
2004 although the building was repaired in 2005 and is currently in use as a
successful function venue.

stable block into 6 dwellings was approved in 2004 and repairs were completed in
2005.

Summary:

Derelict and in a very poor condition for over 15 years. An application for residential
conversion was withdrawn in 1997 and the building continued to deteriorate. General
repairs to the fabric of the building were carried out, culminating in an application to
replace the corrugated roof with natural stone and clay tiles. This was approved in
January 2005 and the works completed with assistance of an historic building grant
from the Council.

Summary:

This listed building had lain neglected and unoccupied for over 30 years. Emergency

Brief Description:
Doulting ashlar farmhouse built around 1800 with
a classical front facade. There is a carved
gryphon on a stone plaque above the door
pediment.

Summary:

A general lack of maintenance and repair resulted in this listed building being added
to the Register in 1993. A change in ownership has resulted in a steady programme
of repairs and the building is now occupied and was removed from the Register in
2005.

L-shaped farmhouse dating from around 1750 with

windows in one section.

Summary:

The previous owner had removed all internal features from the building without
consent and had blocked openings and inserted new floors. Listed Building Consent
was granted in 2005 for the repair and restoration of the interior of the building in
addition to a new extension. The repairs were completed in July 2006 and sold to
new owners shortly after.

Brief Description:
Built around 1699 by Robert Newton for his wife
Ann. It was converted in 1717 (date stone) into a
meeting house, incorporating the gallery at the
East end, the stable at the West end was replaced
by a school room in 1898.

Summary:

The 17th Century Congregational Chapel was removed from the Register in 2006
following the completion of extensive internal and external repairs. The building had
been unoccupied for a number of years and damage to the roof coverings and
rainwater goods had resulted in the building falling into a seriously poor condition.
Mendip District Council assisted in the repair of the building by part funding the works
with a £10,000 Historic Building Grant.

Summary:

Described in the 1993 Register as being semi-derelict, with the roof in poor condition
and interior threatened by exposure to weather. Planning permission was granted for
change of use to a restaurant but never implemented. In 2000, Listed Building
Consent was granted for internal and external repairs to the building although it was
mainly in use as a work store for restoration of the adjacent Manor House. Repairs
have been completed and the building is no longer considered to be at risk.

Brief Description:
Brick built 1930s cinema that was spot listed in
1991, it was last used as a cinema in 1993 but has
remained largely redundant from that time. The
original Art Deco interior decoration remains
largely intact. The owner has recently carried out
essential repairs that were suggested by the
District Council in the preparation of the serving of
an Urgent works Notice.

Summary:

With no beneficial use or occupation for over 7 years, the building had become a
target for vandalism. Various proposals for the reuse of the building had been
submitted including the conversion to a restaurant and children's crèche. Listed
Building Consent was granted for the conversion of the building to a night club in
December 2003. Works were completed in 2005. As part of the conversion, the
buildings distinctive stained glass façade was carefully restored and repaired.

A 17th Century limewashed house with 19th

listed in 1999

Summary:

Having lacked a beneficial use and any maintenance for many years, consent was
granted in 1999 for an extension. Works to implement the consent were started in
October 2003 but confusion over the consent resulted in the interior being stripped
out. A subsequent application to reinstate the original panelling and features was
submitted and approved subject to conditions in March 2004. Work has practically
finished save for some minor internal decoration and the building is no longer
considered to be at risk.
