It’s been an amazing time for the Premier 1st for Property Care team with us being awarded a significant contract to undertake extensive dry rot, waterproofing and damp treatment works at Battenhall Mount, Worcester.
St Mary’s Convent School was formally Battenhall Mount, now an abandoned Roman Catholic School features grand Italian designs as well as classrooms. Battenhall Mount has a rich history and was used as a convalescent home in the First World War too. This project will entail extensive work around the building to restore the impressive house.
Battenhall Mount was built in the mid 19th century for a Quaker and Worcester Clothier, William Spriggs, and then enlarged by the architect John Henry Williams of Worcester for the Hon. Alfred Percy Allsop. Allsopp was Mayor of Worcester in the late 19th century and early 20th century and owned the Star Hotel too. The original house is now incorporated into the South West corner of the property.
Here’s to a busy few months ahead for the Premier 1st for Property Care Team.
