Northwood House, Ward Avenue, Cowes - Isle of Wight (UA)

Large house, 1837, with spectacular interiors. The long-term future of this partly used building is unresolved and maintenance needs to be addressed in the short term. Little progress has been made towards comprehensive repair of the external envelope over the last few years. The Trustees of Northwood House have been urged to appoint a conservation architect, compile a full package of repairs and improvements and to engage with the NLHF. The cost of full repair is very high. Further areas of the building have been brought back into use.
