Newbold College (formerly Moor Close), Binfield - Bracknell Forest (UA)

Moor Close estate, now the home of Newbold College, was Oliver Hill's first house and garden design in an early C20 Arts and Crafts style. The garden and park setting will be affected by development and infrastructure proposals within the Local Plan for Binfield, some of which has now been approved. In addition the garden's built fabric is deteriorating and in urgent need of repair. After a condition survey and some limited site repairs further resources are needed to manage change so that the significance of design, structural fabric and setting may best be sustained or uplifted.
