Grade II listed Georgian Mansion restored

An historic Ribble Valley house which has not been lived in for more than 100 years is to be turned back into a family home.

Townhead, the former home of the Wigglesworth family, has been on English Heritage’s Register of Buildings at Risk, for more than a decade.

The 16-bedroomed house in Slaidburn, which was built in 1729, has remained a hidden gem since it was last used as a shooting lodge at the outbreak of the Second World War.

The revamp of the grade II listed Georgian mansion has been welcomed by bosses at English Heritage, the government’s statutory adviser on the historic environment.

Pure Stone were delighted to supply the stone for this beautiful property & thanks to the Staples got some wonderful images for their new website.
