Newstead Abbey and adjoining boundary wall, Newstead Park, Newstead - Gedling

Priory c1165, post-Dissolution country house, now a visitor attraction and museum, set in formal gardens and parkland. Home of the poet Lord Byron. By 2018, stone fragments were falling from the adjoining priory church ruin and the area was cordoned off. Historic England awarded a two-stage grant in 2018 and repairs were completed in 2020. Roof coverings of the main house are at the end of their effective lives. Leaks are addressed as they occur, but re-slating is now required. Development work is required as an initial step in planning for repairs.
