SPAB – VIRTUAL – Evening Lecture: Castle House, Bridgwater

24 September - 17:00 - 19:00

Rescuing early concrete from ruin

Presented by Henrietta Billings (Director, SAVE) and Chris Balme (Ferguson Mann Architects)

This modest Tudor-style house was constructed by builder John Board in 1851 both as a home and to demonstrate the versatility and potential of a new building material. Despite severe fire damage, it remained a key example of early structural and decorative use of precast and reinforced concrete. This lecture will describe SAVE’s project to rescue the building from ruin.
