A long search for a suitable building finally settled on this one. The building is shared and not ideal,leading to design challenges. Disabled access was difficult, but possible to all the rooms containing stock. The building is of stone with a rendered side elevation and is in a conservation area. Due to the shared use of the building it was not possible to knock down walls or widen stairwells. The windows were replaced and light furniture was chose to give the building a more airy feel.
