News: Planning & LBC Secured for 17th Century Hall & Farmstead Development

Tom Crooks Architecture Ltd. has secured planning permission and listed building consent from the Peak District National Park Planning Authority for the conservation, restoration and extension of the long-abused 17th Century former Yeoman's House in the Staffordshire Moorlands, to bring it back into a family home and for the conversion of the associated agricultural buildings into two large group and three smaller holiday lets.

The hall has suffered from many years of neglect and inappropriate alterations and damage. It required an initial phase of stripping out works, to remove modern 20th Century alterations, finishes and installations to expose the historic fabric to allow for a proper and full assessment. The stripping out works revealed some truly fascinating features, previously hidden from sight.

We secured permissions to conserve the existing spaces and (previously lost) historic features, as well as sensitively modernising the building, forming a new single-storey side extension and conversion of a previously unconverted roof-space.


We also secured permission to convert the three ranges of barns, plus byres into holiday accommodation.
