Chestnuts House - HLF Resilient Heritage funding secured

Chestnuts House, in Walthamstow, London, is a fine Grade 2* listed mansion built on the edge of the village of Walthamstow in 1742/3 but now in the suburbs of London. Remarkably, it has changed little since its original construction although its gardens and its setting have been lost to development. It is regarded as the best surviving, and least altered, example of Georgian domestic architecture in Waltham Forest. However, for many years it has remained unused other than being occupied on a temporary basis by residential ‘Guardians’ to ensure its security. Lack of productive use combined with lack of maintenance over a prolonged period and deterioration simply due to its age means the building is in poor condition and requires a major programme of repairs and upgrading to bring it back into beneficial use. As a consequence, the building’s future is uncertain and it is included on Historic England’s national ‘Buildings at Risk’ Register.

Paddy McNulty Associates were commissioned by the London Borough of Waltham Forest to develop and write a HLF Resilient Heritage so that the building can begin to be restored and brough back into. The HLF awarded Chestnuts House a £80,000 Resilient Heritage grant in January 2017.
