This ancient and rural church is listed Grade 1, and has a 12th century round tower and a huge mural of St Christopher in the nave. It is in a beautiful, peaceful location and is well used and well loved by the parishioners.
Swallow's Flight is a new house situated behind a medieval listed house, and a sensitive approach had to be taken to the design. The house is low rise, and designed for a keen gardener, with a pergola, perforated retaining walls and a terrace which are all covered in plants.
The house is within a conservation area so careful consideration of the outside appearance was important, with the use of natural materials at a scale to suit the existing building.
Our work focuses on historic buildings, churches and sensitive sites which require a careful approach and expertise in conservation. We design unique new houses for individual clients and are experts in the use of traditional materials for both new build and regeneration.
