410. Demolition of the Cedars
It's always a bit sad to see any building pulled down but, in the case of The Cedars, something very special is going to take its place.
This is how it looked at 10:45 this morning.
The owners of The Cedars had originally planned to improve and extend the house, but the costs were prohibitive and the result still wouldn't have been ideal for their requirements. The building lies just outside the conservation area, so the decision was made to demolish and start from scratch with a super efficient, modern Grand Design.
The proposed elevations can be seen here.
Here are a few photos of the Cedars, taken on a sunny day earlier this year.
It was once the village's police house and the cell windows could still be
seen on the rear of the building.
