Belmont House, Belmont Rural - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

A late C18 country house by James Wyatt, extended and remodelled by EW Pugin c1860. The property has been unused since 2014 and is deteriorating through longstanding lack of regular maintenance. Holes in the roof and broken windows allow rain entry and increased risk of rot and decay. Delamination and erosion of stonework is a problem. A new use for the building is critical to its future and should be encouraged through the planning process.
