Welcome to our project blogg, who knows how long this will take us, but it’s sure to be hard work and hopefully, fun!
This little cottage on Leigh Hill is to be our family project. We’ve long harboured ambitions to undertake an historic building restoration, but somehow work and family commitments always seemed to get in the way. After a truly awful 2017, with the loss of our mothers, the time to tackle a “project” seemed opportune, especially as I’ve now retired from professional life in London.
28 Leigh Hill has a wonderful history and you can find out more about it here:
Our plans for the cottage are explained in the design statement that forms part of the Listed Building Consent authorising the works.
We hope you’ll enjoy following our progress renovating this historic corner of Leigh on Sea.
