Orangery, Newby Hall, North Yorkshire
Client: Newby Hall
Newby Hall, a grade I listed mansion located near Ripon was acquired by William Weddell in 1748. Weddell transformed the house and designed the Grade II listed Orangery. The Orangery had been significantly altered over the years with the replacement of full height sash windows with rendered brick panels and small sash windows, the loss of the glazed roof and decorative parapet, and the erection of several extensions.
Woodhall prepared a scheme for the restoration of the building which included: demolition of the twentieth century extensions, extensive masonry repairs, reinstatement of the full height sash windows, provision of decorative anthemions along the parapet, and the construction of a new south terrace. Woodhall also submitted a planning and listed building consent application for the erection of ancillary accommodation for its use as an events venue.
The project included historical research, architectural design, historic building conservation and conservation planning.
This project was jointly commissioned by City of York Council and York Business Improvement District (BID) in order to advise on the design and location of winter lights attached to listed buildings in the city centre. The project involved assessment of the impact of lighting proposals on 50 listed buildings, discussion and negotiation with the lighting contractor and installer to minimise short and long term impact on the listed buildings affected, and development of a Winter Lights strategy. This involved understanding of the repair and maintenance issues relating to historic buildings as well as consideration of listed building legislation.
The conservation input related to historic building conservation and conservation planning.
Woodhall was appointed by Marstons Estates to provide historic building advice and prepare a heritage statement to support planning and listed building consent applications for the conversion of this Grade II* listed former club into a bar and restaurant. Woodhall consulted with Historic England and Leeds City Council prior to the submission of the applications. This early engagement and the positive discussions led to a swift determination of the applications and the gaining of planning permission and listed building consent.
The project included historical research, historic building conservation and conservation planning.i>
