Woolsington Hall fire: Owners Cameron Hall were due to start development of luxury hotel complex

Woolsington Hall fire: Owners Cameron Hall were due to start development of luxury hotel complex
31 Dec 2015 By Sonia Sharma

The owners of Woolsington Hall have spoken of their devastation after a fire broke out at the historic building - and revealed multi-million pound renovation works were just weeks away.

The three-storey grade-II listed country house went up in flames at around 8.30pm on Tuesday and more than 30 firefighters battled to put out the blaze in high winds. The main hall was severely damaged, with its interiors and roof destroyed.

The property, which was placed on English Heritage’s ‘at risk’ register in 2002, was to be developed into a five-star hotel, with executive homes, spa and golf course. Developers Cameron Hall, who bought the site in 1994, were given planning permission for the scheme by Newcastle City Council in July and work was due to start in the New Year.

Speaking after the fire, Paul Mackings, chief executive of Cameron Hall Developments, said: “We are absolutely devastated. I got a phone call at around 9.15pm on Tuesday saying there was a fire at the site and I went down there straight away. By then, it was well under way. The winds were very strong, there were gusts of around 65mph to 70mph, and the building literally went up in flames. The firefighters were fantastic and did all they could. But there was substantial damage to the main hall. The roof had come in. I was standing there watching it and I couldn’t believe it. In the summer we were given planning permission by the council for our scheme and we recently got the go-ahead from the Secretary of State. We were planning to start work in the New Year. But this fire has left us devastated. I have spent six years of my life pulling all this together. I still can’t believe it.”

The cause of the blaze is not known at this stage and the police and fire brigade have launched an investigation into the incident. Mr Mackings added: “We don’t know what caused the fire as yet. There was nothing combustible inside, and the place was boarded up and secure. We are now just trying to work with engineers and architects to see what elements can be saved.”

Woolsington Hall fire: Search for arsonists who caused 'millions of pounds of damage'



From Chronicle Live website on 15/01/16

The dramatic blaze at the grade II-listed property on the outskirts of Newcastle was started deliberately, police have said


Fire crews damp down Woolsington Hall after it was damaged by fire.

The search for firestarters who caused millions of pounds of damage to a historic stately home has been stepped up.

Police have appealed for help to find the arsonists who they believe set a number of fires inside the grade II-listed building on the outskirts of Newcastle , which left it completely destroyed.

Insp Julie Rana, of Northumbria Police, is now asking the public to think back to the evening of December 29, when the blaze broke out, and get in touch if they saw any suspicious people or vehicles in the area. She also revealed the staggering cost of the damage.

Insp Rana said: “We are appealing for anyone who might have seen any suspicious people or vehicles in the areas around Woolsington Hall on that Tuesday evening.

“Whoever has done this has caused millions of pounds worth of damage and has completely destroyed the building. We are carrying out enquiries and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has any information that could help us.”

The fire at three-storey Woolsington Hall, in Woolsington village, is thought to have been started sometime between 6pm and 8pm four days after Christmas.

It took more than 30 firefighters to battle the blaze in high winds, and crews were still there the next day dampening down.

The property, which was placed on English Heritage’s ‘at risk’ register in 2002, was due to be developed into a five-star hotel, with executive homes, spa and golf course also on the site.

Woolsington Hall fire: 'Urgent work' under way out to stabilise Newcastle building, 19/01/16

Follow up

From Chronicle Live website on 19/01/16

A major fire destroyed much of Woolsington Hall, in Newcastle, on December 29 - work to stabilise the facade is now under way

Work to secure the remains of a Newcastle mansion is under way after it was devastated by fire.

More than 30 firefighters battled the blaze as it ripped through Woolsington Hall on December 29 destroying the roof, walls and floors of the hall.

Scaffolding specialists are now working to secure the facade of the building, which was listed in the English Heritage at risk register in 2002.

Cameron Hall, the developer that owns the estate, has carried out a survey and some demolition work to help make the site safe before work to reconstruct the hall can get under way.

Before the fire it was hoped plans for a five-star hotel on the site would create around 165 jobs and plough £9m a year into the region’s economy.

The firm also received permission for 72 homes on the edge of the site to help offset investment costs.

Paul Mackings, chief executive of Cameron Hall, said: “We’ve had to put together a methodology statement and an element of demolition had to be carried out to make the building safe.

“We’ve put a plan together based on securing the facade and making sure that’s safe.

“We are putting a planning application in to rebuild.

“We are as confident as we can be that everybody will support us, hopefully in the next three to four months we can get on with things but the key thing at the moment is to stabilise the facade.

“It’s key we make sure we don’t lose anything else.”

Woolsington Hall restoration should be 'reconsidered' as fire removes need for 'millionaire homes'
6 May 2016 By Katie Dickinson


Fire crews damp down Woolsington Hall after it was damaged by fire

Campaigners have called for a controversial development at Woolsington Hall to be “reconsidered” in the wake of last year’s devastating fire.

Owners Cameron Hall Developments want to start reconstructing the hall after a blaze which tore through the grade II-listed building in December. The developers had previously been granted permission to transform the former 17th century Jacobean hunting lodge into a £23m five-star hotel.

The costs of refurbishing and developing the site were to be met with a 72-home development, which was also given the green light in July despite fierce opposition from campaigners calling it a “greenbelt grab”. But opponents have said that the fire, which police believe was started deliberately, has removed the need for the “millionaire homes” and claimed rebuilding the hall would be “a farce”.

A planning application submitted to Newcastle City Council proposes to reconstruct and restore the building, including the roof, floor layouts, staircase, landing windows and basement. It comes after an earlier application to demolish parts of the hall earlier this year.

The documents say: “The works proposed are aimed primarily at stabilising the structure, retaining and reusing as much of the original historic fabric as possible and protecting its remaining heritage significance. The fire however has also provided the opportunity to, where appropriate, remove unsympathetic later alterations/additions and reinstate original 17th century features.”

Work under way to bring coastal landmark back to its former glory

‘At-risk’ lime kilns heritage site to get £450,000 restoration
04 September 2015


Marsden lime kilns

An at-risk industrial landmark is to enjoy a near half of a million pound renaissance, it has emerged.

The Marsden Lime Kilns site is a ‘scheduled monument of national importance’ – one of only three in the borough of South Tyneside, alongside Arbeia Roman Fort in South Shields and St Paul’s Monastery in Jarrow. But it also features on English Heritage’s ‘Buildings At Risk’ list due to its poor condition.

The massive structures, essentially large ovens, dating from the 1870s, were an offshoot industry of the former Whitburn Colliery. The square kilns, built in the 1870s, produced quicklime which was used in agriculture to neutralise soil.

Now it has emerged that Historic England and the owners of the kilns site, Owen Pugh, are to jointly fund a restoration programme, expected to begin next spring. The aim is to restore the kilns and attract more visitors to the site. The project costs are in the region of £450,000, to be shared equally between Historic England and Owen Pugh.

John Dickson, chairman of the Owen Pugh Group which owns Marsden Quarry where the lime kilns are located, said: “Marsden Lime Kilns have been a significant feature in South Tyneside’s landscape since the 1870s and a visible reminder of our industrial past. We are delighted to provide funding, alongside grant aid from Historic England, to ensure the long-term preservation of this important local landmark.”

Work under way to bring coastal landmark back to its former glory
11th May 2016


Team Force Restoration MD Brendan Teasdale in foreground with Operations Manager Nick Graham and Contracts Manager Craig Burt.

No stone is being left unturned in the restoration of an industrial landmark.

Work is well under way to restore Marsden's imposing lime kilns by a team of stone and brick conservation specialists. Months have been spent researching the original construction of the coastal lime kilns, built in the 1870s as an offshoot industry of the former Whitburn Colliery. When the colliery closed in 1968, the lime kilns stopped operating and then fell into disrepair. After featuring on English Heritage's 'Buildings at Risk list due to its poor condition, £450,000 is being ploughed into the site's restoration.

Team Force Restoration are now hard at work restoring the kilns, once used to produce quicklime which was used in agriculture to neutralise soil as well as in the steel and chemical industries, to their former glory. As part of the project, being funded by Historic England and the kilns' owners Owen Pugh Group, the team is reviving an ancient formula for hot lime mortar, paving the way for a new approach to stone restoration. The latest research in the field of stone restoration shows that hot lime can not only replicate historic mortars, but can also contribute to a dryer structure and has better preservation qualities. Skilled stone masons and craftsmen from Team Force Restoration are repointing and consolidating the ragged, uneven tops of the kilns. They are also conserving walls, protecting features and safeguarding the brick and stonework in strict accordance with the style of the times.

Managing director of Team Force Restoration, Brendan Teasdale, said: “Team Force Restoration is committed to leading the field when it comes to the use of historic mortars and we are re-creating our own 'hot lime' mortars based on the latest studies. Test areas are being prepared and hot lime will be used to consolidate areas of random stone walling. The ingredients of the mortars will all differ slightly so as to ascertain the best mix. The sample mortars will be monitored over a period of twelve months and if proven successful this could provide an alternative to the hydraulic lime mortars currently used today where matching mortars for historic purposes is essential. In time, hot limes could prove to be essential for masonry conservation in the UK, and as far as I am concerned this is a must for the protection of our built heritage."

Historic buildings which make the region special are 'at risk' English Heritage warns

Historic buildings which make the region special are 'at risk' English Heritage warns
2 Jun 2016 By Laura Hill

Almost 300 historic buildings across the North East are at risk of being lost forever, English Heritage has warned.

Sunderland City Council has stepped in to fund restoration work on the 160-year-old Seaburn lighthouse as part of a £1.5m seafront revamp which will save the iconic monument from the list.

However for the majority of the 292 monuments and buildings on the list, the future is less certain.

Carol Pyrah, planning director for Historic England North East said: “There are things that make each region special and, once lost, it will mean a sense of our region’s character is lost too.”

Historic places on the at risk list in the North East include;

* The Church of All Saints, Newcastle city centre - A Grade I listed former church built between 1786-96 that is now vacant and in need of repair.
* The Keelmen’s Hospital, City Road - Grade II* listed,vacant former almshouses built in 1701 for men and women who worked on boats that transported coal along the Tyne and Wear rivers.
* The site of the Battle of Newburn Ford – The Scottish Army invaded Newcastle after defeating the English at this river crossing in 1640, the battle was a key step towards the English Civil War.
* Bondgate Tower, Alnwick - The east gate of the former town wall was built around 1450 by the second Earl of Northumberland. The gate has been damaged by a number of crashes is a risk of serious collapse.
* Water tank, Fort House Seaton Sluice - Built in 1917 the water tower is a rare survival of part of a World War I fort. A repair scheme has been drawn up by Historic England.
* F Pit Museum, Washington - The pit was sunk in 1777 but the engine house wasn’t built until 1926. The pit closed in 1968 and the site was cleared, apart from the engine house which is now in need of repair.
* Durham Prison Officers’ Club - The 15th century granary building lies outside of Durham Prison’s perimeter fence and is used as part of the Prison Officers’ Club

I wonder if sometime around 2012 lead was stolen from the church roof which has led to water ingress?

In one of my many telecons with NCC about the assembly rooms I enquired whether it would help them if I reported the criminal works carried out on the building to the police as a they were clearly a heritage crime. They speeded up a bit at that point [from coma to torpor].

Life Transformation Church (former Church of St Paul), Havelock Place, High Elswick - Newcastle upon Tyne

Parish church of 1856-9 designed by John Dobson. Formally closed in 2006, the church lay vacant, and subject to heritage crime, until taken over by the Life Transformation Ministry in 2009. The Ministry plans to tackle the major structural issues from which the building suffers but, due to the parlous nature of the building, services are currently being held in an adjoining building.

Must say I was rather taken back by the initial plans to remove the pews from the church given that they date from 1859.

From the Design & Access Statement:
The fixed church pews are believed to be original and date from 1859. They do constitute a significant feature within the building, but there presence does restrict the alternative uses that can be accommodated within the building.

However it is good to see that the proposal for the pew removal has been removed from the PA.

These images of the church were taken in April 2003:

These works, above, follow on from the recent new roof. The pews are long gone - I don't know what's in there now. There was a weekend club - the Havelock - in the sunday school but that closed a couple of years ago following a doubling of the rent. The current building work on the stonework is a model of good practice and it's worth taking a look at it on that account. Here's a picture, hosted on Photobucket, of the western gable taken in March of this year.

Grant secures survival for historic church

Grant secures survival for historic church
30 September 2016



Kielder Water and Forest Park secured a grant of £336,300 to fund a new, two-year project, while St George’s Church in Mickley has received £84,000 to fund repairs and upgrades.

Kielder Water and Forest Park will host a new project Living Wild at Kielder aimed at encouraging visitors to venture further into the park and explore its diverse natural heritage. It will include activities for all ages, from osprey roadshows and food foraging to a young ecologists club and nature trails.

Director of Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust Lynn Turner said: “The awarding of this new support from the Heritage Lottery Fund is wonderful news for the Living Wild At Kielder project. With this enhanced offering for nature lovers, alongside the largest man-made lake in northern Europe and England’s largest working forest, the attraction of Kielder as a destination for visitors goes from strength to strength.”

Meanwhile, St George’s Church in Mickley is set to be removed from Historic England’s ‘at risk’ register thanks to the grant.

The red, clay-tiled roof of the 190-year-old church will receive urgent repairwork and upgrades to rainwater drainage systems to prevent further water damage.

The project will also explore the possibility of a water and drainage system which would allow the installation of toilet and kitchen facilities in the future, to allow for more community activities. The history of the church will also be revealed thanks to a heritage trail and the development of a website.

Four privately owned sites in Northumberland have come off the Heritage 'At Risk' register

Good news from today's Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/...rland-12051503
Four privately owned sites in Northumberland have come off the Heritage 'At Risk' register
21 Oct 2016 By Tony Henderson


Heaton Castle, Northumberland

The perseverance and dedication of private owners of historic buildings in the North East has been praised for helping to save the heritage gems.

As a consequence, four key structures have been removed from Historic England’s Heritage At Risk register 2016, published on Friday, which provides an annual snapshot of the health of the region’s historic environment. Nationally, 3.8% of grade I and II-star listed buildings - excluding places of worship - are on the register. In the North East the percentage is 6.2%. That is mainly because of the remote nature of large areas of the region’s countryside and the large number of remains from its warring centuries as a frontier territory with Scotland.

Kate Wilson, Heritage at Risk principal for Historic England in the North East, said: “We have made significant progress in removing some of our most precious historic buildings and places from the heritage At Risk register this year. Action taken by local community and volunteer groups is increasingly important in helping to save many of our most cherished monuments, but there is more to do. We need to find new ways to breathe life into our neglected historic places. Investment in our heritage is an investment in the future of the North East.”

Across the region 18 sites have been removed from the register and 18 have been added because of concerns about their condition, including three places of worship. Over the year, Historic England has offered £463,000 in grants to help 13 of the region’s historic sites. The 2016 register reveals that in the North East, 60 Grade I and II-star buildings, 175 scheduled monuments, 27 places of worship, six registered parks and gardens, one registered battlefield and 31 conservation areas are at risk of neglect, decay or inappropriate change. There are 300 assets on the North East register, two fewer than in 2015.

Four privately owned sites in Northumberland have come off the register this year. They are all no longer at risk thanks to the efforts of the individual owners and their funding partnerships with Historic England, Heritage Lottery Fund, Natural England and local authorities.

They are:
Felton Park Greenhouse
Heaton Castle
Linnels Mill, near Slaley
Corbridge Pottery Kilns
