The AHF appreciates that neglected buildings which are all too familiar in our towns, cities and countryside can, with a little imagination and a lot of enthusiasm, be rescued to become assets for their communities by people wanting to make a difference. The AHF has helped hundreds of organisations throughout the UK to do exactly that.

Stratford Toll House gains planning permission

Architectural Heritage Fund

Hundreds of people pass this little building every day as it is situated on Clopton Bridge, a main road into Stratford-upon-Avon. The building is listed Grade I and has been identified as a Building at Risk on the Historic England (formerly English Heritage) Heritage at Risk Register. It looks neglected and semi-derelict (although it is wind and watertight).

Behind the scenes, the Stratford Historic Buildings Trust (SHBT) has been working hard for the past three years to find a new use for the ten-sided former Toll House. With the encouragement and financial support of the Architectural Heritage Fund, Historic England and Stratford District Council, various options for re-use have been investigated and an Options Appraisal Report produced. An AHF Project Development Grant levered in some partnership funding from the Stratford Society and Stratford District Council, enabling the Trust to make capital funding applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England.

The Trust has just heard that planning permission has been granted for the proposed conversion into an office, reported in the Stratford Observer.
