Worcestershire Buildings Preservation Trust are delighted to report that work has commenced on site at Willow Court Farmhouse in Droitwich. This exciting project to restore a 16th Century Farmhouse, currently owned by Wychavon District Council, has only been possible with development phase funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and support from the Architectural Heritage Fund. The trust are delighted that this project partnering with Wychavon DC and Platform Housing is underway.
The farmhouse initially required a complex scaffolding constructed around it, to support the structure, which has attracted lots of attention locally. The wrapping and roof covering will provide a valuable protective layer to stop any further deterioration or damage of the building’s fabric.
As part of this year’s national Heritage Open Days (https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/) initiative, the trust plans to hold an event locally about Willow Court Farmhouse, covid restrictions allowing. So please pop 1-4pm on Saturday 18th September 2021 in your diary and join them to take part in Tudor themed activities.
And finally, they are keen to keep people updated about the project as it progresses. If you would like to learn more about the project and see images of it’s development, please do follow them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WillowCourtFarmhouse or join their mailing list: http://eepurl.com/hCMj2P
