With C17th. origins, the ‘towers’ was the home of Colonel Thorneycroft who was an inveterate inventor of domestic appliances from boot warmers to ventilation systems and means to capture methane from foul drainage.  The Grade II* listed building incorporates a triple tier theatre and ballroom with its own bespoke suspended sprung floor.

Our initial work here is to address serious flaws in the roof drainage; many as a result of Thorneycroft’s efforts to recycle rainwater to supply a waterfall in the theatre.
