Winsford Cottage Hospital was designed by CFA Voysey and served the community for most of the 20th century. It had suffered unsympathetic adaptions and driving rain off the nearby Atlantic coast. Much of the building’s fabric needed renewal, especially the roof, while the building’s integrity had been lost through the addition of a day room, partitions and finishes such as vinyl flooring. A deep understanding of the building’s heritage significance was developed through archival research and an invasive condition survey. A detailed and sensitive restoration has been achieved, largely due to the architect’s involvement from the outset, the knowledge and experience of the Landmark Trust, and a committed local community group’s involvement. The result is a thorough and beautiful conservation project which has restored the soul of the handsome original building.
