What Needs to be Done?

Essential Repairs …to the structure and fabric as described by Engineers The Brian Morton Partnership within the Feasibility Study. Sound conservation philosophy is at the heart of the Mid Essex Historic Building Trust’s work.

Flood Defence Work… currently flooding ~ 6 times per year but needing an impractical 1.5m elevation to avoid this, a mere 450 mm lift would reduce flooding to an exciting, educational, yet manageable once per year. You would be introduced to the tide tables when you book this Granary!

Legal and Contractual Procurement… by the Mid Essex Historic Buildings Trust to ensure a loing term sustainable use for this listed building.

Access for All… a discrete lift and a new external stairway will provide safe access whilst making the most of the spectacular 1st floor river views.
