Upton Hall, Main Road, Upton - Newark and Sherwood

Country house, 1832, by WJ Donthorn. Now used by the British Horological Institute as offices, education and a clock museum. Roof coverings are in fair condition but rainwater disposal is poor, with corresponding internal dampness and sings of active dry rot. The adjacent stables and courtyard structures contribute to the setting of the hall and are now in very poor condition and all at significant risk of loss. Previous proposals for works to the Hall and repair of the stables for educational use have fallen through. Further advice on repairs and grant funding is being sought.
