Highcliffe Castle, Dorset
The latest phase of works at Highcliffe Castle in Dorset has just been completed; Mann Williams have been involved in the last two major phases of repair and conservation of this Grade 1 Listed building.
Highcliffe Castle was built in 1835 in a prominent cliff top location but was extensively damaged by fires in the 1960’s and was left as a ruin until 1990 when the first of many phases of repair commenced.
As part of Phases 6 and 7, Mann Williams have designed new walkways, floor staircases and stairs for previously unrepaired parts of the building.
This phase, phase 7 ‘The Pheonix flies’ offers public access to the East wing of the castle for the first time.
As an extension to our involvement we have also provided advice on the stability of the 16th
Century Oriel window, salvaged from France.
