Lyscombe Farm, Piddletrenthide, Dorset
Lyscombe Chapel and Priest’s House had fallen into a ruinous state. They were repaired with EH and DEFRA grants, and converted into a public space and overnight shelter for walkers on the Downland Way.
The chapel has been simply repaired with the traditional trades of lime mortar, masonry, green oak carpentry and thatched roofing.
Complex archaeological assessment and presentation of ruins, ancient church and landscape.
The Priest House walls were stabilised and the tops weathered, skillfully carried out by the contractor.
