The SPAB Old House Project at St Andrews, Kent
The SPAB’s Old House Project site is a Grade II* ‘building at risk’ near Maidstone, Kent. St Andrews (former) chapel is a ‘sleeping beauty’ that has stood empty for around 50 years. When the SPAB bought the building in November 2018, it was hidden behind an overgrown garden; vandal damage had left the site vulnerable; and parts of the roof were leaking. In 2018 and early 2019 emergency work to the roof and windows was carried out and a security system installed. But there are significant repairs still to be done.
The SPAB Old House Project Virtual Tour
We will share our learnings and progress through our education programme, video demonstrations and the project book. When it comes to historic buildings we advocate repair over demolition. The Old House Project will show what can be done to bring an ‘at risk’ building back into use.
