PCPT have been appointed to carry out works to this grand piece of historic architecture.
Harvington Hall is one of the most alive and telling houses of the Midlands. What set out as an Anglo-Norman seigneur ’s medieval moated manor evolved, with it’s priests’ hideaways, to become a most potent symbol of Catholic suffering through the machinations of the Tudor hegemony.
The house is antique in every way with access over a bridge to a large ‘island’ through huge doors over cobbles and into a cluttered courtyard with tall brick towers of unaccountable design with inside a warren of rooms and stunning decoration and detail.
It is a huge task and one for a number of years. The key to us as architects is to add to the place but to take nothing away and we thank our client the Roman Catholic Archdiocese for their trust in PCPT.
