Towneley Park is a Grade II listed parkland, containing grade I and grade II listed buildings. Works carried out by the practice include alterations to the baroque Great Hall and the garden elevation of the grade I house to improve access for the disabled and for events, allowing the hall and lawn to be linked for use for functions, such as wedding parties.
Within the parkland, we advised on the conservation issues in the HLF funded restoration. We were architects for the repair and conservation of Burnley Cenotaph, a limestone, granite and bronze war memorial. The conservation work has included works to the monument, surrounding walls and flagging and the reinstatement of a reflective pool. Also in the park we were architects for the repair and conservation of Foldy’s Cross, a fifteenth century market cross, which was relocated to the park following road widening early in the twentieth century.
