Description

Description

Situated in a conservation area. The original plan was to extend and refurbish the existing library but it became clear at the design stage that it would be more cost-effective to demolish and rebuild to a completely new design. After demolition an archaeological investigation of the site revealed a great deal of interesting information concerning this mediaeval port.
