Criteria for Risk

  • Vacant with no identified new use
  • Suffering from neglect and/or poor maintenance


  • Condition of Structure: Poor
  • Level of Risk: High

This building has been vacant for a number of years and does not appear to be maintained. Most of the external fabric remains, but there are obvious signs of deterioration, particularly water penetration, slipped slates, vegetation growth, broken windows and vandalism. There is no immediate danger of collapse but the condition is such that unless urgent remedial works are carried out the building will sharply deteriorate. A finely detailed Regency style villa with impressive Ionic portico within extensive grounds to the south of the railway station. There are attractive views of the house, surrounded by trees, from the railway station and railway bridge, making a significant contribution to the character of Church Street. This building urgently requires new uses to be identified to prevent further deterioration of its character.

Recommended Use:

  • Commercial,
  • Community
