The Restoration of Halsway Manor
Major repairs to and development of the manor house have recently been completed thanks to the exceptional support and donations from individual supporters and clubs, and funding from grant bodies
In phase I the buildings and grounds were repaired with a grant of £387,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), £57,600 from the Country Houses Foundation and £100,000 from supporter donations. This library collection was curated and a creative learning programme developed for local schools and communities across West Somerset. Phase II focused on developing new space for workshops and was supported with help from the LEADER Rural Development Programme for England (£72,488). We a now have a beautifully restored dining room, plus an overflow dining space that can also be used for workshop activities. The Long Room is now purely a workshop space, no longer having to double as a dining room! We also have a brand-new, state of the art kitchen and service building, sympathetically linked to the rear of the Manor House. It means more space for workshops and activities, and more space to relax and enjoy the Halsway experience!
The work was completed in 2021 – one of the most challenging periods recent history! to find out more, and support us visit our Fundraising Page.
We are so very, very grateful for all the support and hope all our visitors enjoy the new facilities!
