Three years of restoration work rescued Wyndham Lodge and The Stables, Grade II listed buildings that were formerly a hunting lodge and stables and latterly Melton’s War Memorial Hospital.
Both had fallen victim to dereliction and extensive rot but have been sensitively converted into nine apartments and eight dwellings respectively, as part of a wider development which also includes 46 new build houses.
Wyndham Lodge and its parkland was gifted to the people of Melton in 1920. Most local people had used the services of the hospital at some point and still remember it fondly.
Due to invasive rot very few of the original features could be restored and stripping back to the shell was necessary. The stonework, however, could be restored and each piece has been tooled by hand in one form or another.
A stone bay window has been rebuilt by hand for Wyndham Lodge, with smaller stone windows being rebuilt for The Stables. The new timber slimline double-glazed windows are hand-made and traditional lime render has been used on the gables.
Wyndham Lodge and The Stables have been saved for the next phase of their life and to benefit the people of Melton Mowbray. As part of the project, there are five acres of privately owned publicly accessible parkland which is cared for and maintained by the developer for use by the public.
