The Holme, Burnley Road, Cliviger - Burnley

One of south Lancashire's few surviving country houses dating from the late C16-early C17, with later alterations. Much original fabric was lost to fire in 2004 and subsequent architectural theft and vandalism. The building was acquired by a developer at auction in 2013. Conditional Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent for conversion to apartments were granted in 2015 and, although the development is complete and the building re-occupied, work has not progressed as anticipated due to non-compliance and unauthorised works. Until resolved, the building is regarded as at risk.
