Planning has been approved for the formation of a stone boundary wall and railings with integral vehicular and pedestrian gates in Ampleforth College, North Yorkshire.

The site is situated to the western boundary of Theatre Square, adjacent to the Grade I Listed Abbey Church of St. Laurence, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, and the Grade II Listed Old School Study Block which was designed by Charles Hansom (designer of the Hansom Cab) and his brother Aloysius Hansom.

Located on the north slopes of a 2km-wide valley within the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ampleforth College has a significant history dating back to 1802.

The College’s 46 existing buildings also include a Grade II Listed Foot Bridge and arguably the largest collection of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott buildings in any one location.

We have been appointed to provide sympathetic structural engineering design services and advice, including reinforcing wide slab type foundations, raising ground levels, installing a new precast drainage channel, and underpinning of existing curved wall foundations.
