Sandhill Park, Bishop's Lydeard - Taunton Deane

Country house c1720. A fire in 2011 caused serious damage to the roof structure and top floor. In 2013, planning permission was granted for an enabling development scheme, which has now been completed, although works to the house did not commence. In 2017, consent was granted for conversion of the ancillary buildings and a new roof to the main house. The new roof has been completed, and works to the ancillary buildings are underway. Pre-application discussions continue in respect of the principle building.
