Hylton Castle, a Grade I Listed building and Scheduled Monument, was recently restored and repurposed in an award-winning development, as a chance to make it a part of the surrounding, local communities that it serves. The project aimed to breathe new life to the historic, ancient building, which serves as a focal point to many.
BDN provided the internal steel frame for the building.
The castle has been left standing, abandoned and unloved, since the 1960’s, and has since been repaired to high conservation standards.
The redevelopment transformed the 14th Century Gatehouse into a heritage led multi-functional space with a learning centre, café, exhibition, and flexible events space for community and educational use.
The project won the Conservation and Regeneration award at the Constructing Excellence National Awards 2020. Its restoration symbolises that it is very much a Castle in the Community.
