Hexham Abbey restoration
Hexham Abbey Parochial Church Council is on the hunt for an architect to lead the £1.75 million restoration of its grade I listed buildings
Built between 1170 and 1250 in the Early English style, Hexham Abbey in Northumberland features Henry Thomas Bosdet-designed stained glass windows and stones in the barrel-vaulted crypt which date from the Roman occupation of Britain.
The project aims to refurbish the abbey’s monastic complex, creating new visitor facilities including exhibition and interpretation spaces, education and meeting rooms, an archive, kitchen and cafe.
The final date for the receipt of requests to participate is 21st March, 2011 with tenders due to be invited late March 2011.
Work is expected to start on site in June 2011.
