Meet the co-ordinators !

The team is formed by 5th year students from Manchester School of Architecture. We are all very passionate about working with historic buildings and several of us have experience working in specialist conservation practices.

We are preparing full sets of planning drawings and documents for the 1st and 2nd years to use when the project commences at the end of March.
We are hoping that these drawings will serve as inspiration and informative material for all students joining us in proposing future/modern uses for Clayton Hall!

Looking through exhibitions of archival research carried out previously in Manchester provides us with inspiration for how we as a group of students can showcase Clayton's Hall's intriguing history. We can now start to think how the work we complete during the two weeks events prgramme can tell a story and hopefully influence the Hall's future.

Last Tuesday we presented our project brief to prospective first and second year students participating in our Events project. Our team representatives highlighted how valuable being involved in this event would be when going into practice as some of them might have to produce a feasibility study or work with a listed building. We are really excited to welcome these students to our project and look forward to working with them.

Remeber that if you still have any questions following the the Clayton Hall Event presentation you can message the team on Instagram.

We had a great visit to Clayton Hall today. We were able to look round the fascinating building and when guided by the volunteers were able to appreciate the rich and potentially unique history. We look forward to working with Clayton Hall in the coming months and supporting their work.
