Anyone know when the Old Hall will be demolished?
12. Sep 2016 at 14:01
 
Is there a start date for the commencement of demolition? The old hospital hall at the rear of the clock tower has the one story building cleared away and recently scaffolding has been placed against its walls.
I'm asking as the previous Month when clearing away the smaller one story buildings, dust and matter was sent higher than the  houses around and later a man with a garden hose tried to keep the dust clouds damped down to no avail.

So we need to know when to keep windows and doors closed and washing off the line.

A note through the letter boxed may help from the owners explaining dates and times would assist.

Thanks

I live in Rogers Walk and have revived a letter saying the demolition is to start on Monday 26th Sept, sad to see it go as I got quite used to seeing the birds flying in and out, plus I was our garden wasn't over looked

Is the cupola on top of the main building going to be restored ?  It looks ugly without it !

The demolition of the old building behind The Clockhouse is underway but it will be a slow process. Under the eye of an ecologist, the roof will be carefully taken off to allow birds to escape and the bats will be relocated to a roost that has been specially built for them as part of the development of The Hamptons.

The bell tower on top of The Clockhouse was completely rotten, which is why it had to come down (it was officially condemned) so there is no chance of restoring the original item. Something similar may be put back up there in time but not any time soon as there is no money available to do so.

Is there no obligation to replace it as the building is listed?

That's a real shame, an interesting looking building has now become ugly - the tower just looks wrong, somehow.

The building isn't listed. Many people think it is but it isn't.

It is a shame it can't be immediately replaced but there simply isn't the money (it cost over 10k just to take the old one down).

Thank you, I stand corrected.
