AGM -and Facing up to the future-the story of Horton Court. Colette Cuddihy Monday 18 March 2019

Over fifty members and guests listened to Colette Cuddihy describe how the National Trust renovated a near derelict manor house which dates back to the medieval era.

In 2015 Horton Court was deemed uninhabitable after having been vacant for 8 Years.  No work had been carried out since the 1930’s and the house was in serious need of reservicing – new electrics/heating, kitchens and bathrooms, - some of the modern additions. From the 1920’s also needed a review as the house was dark, disorientating and damp. Over 15 months the Trust have painstakingly transformed the property into somewhere a modern family will want to live -  whilst retaining original features and even finding some new ones!
