GILDHOUSE RESTORATION  
Restoration image

















  
The last restoration was very sympathetically done in 1907, which has saved the building from complete ruin. The current restoration project has involved removing rotten timbers, replacing the guttering and repairing the damaged cob walls.

We have completely refurbished the kitchen and installed a disabled toilet on each floor, along with disabled access. There is also a new and much needed car park. So after 450 years the Gildhouse is entering the next phase of its life and will be hopefully used by the people of Poundstock and further afield for many more years to come.
