The former Red Lyon, a Grade II Listed Building, is situated on the High Street in Whitchurch, Shropshire. It was formally a coaching inn which had retained its hotel status until the late 1980’s when the upper floors fell into disuse. The ground floor, under various owners, has been used intermittently as a drinking establishment until it fell empty towards the end of 2013.
Although most of the building is of early 19th Century construction it does incorporate earlier 17th and 18th Century elements.
We were briefed to create retail units fronting the High Street and convert the remainder in to apartments.
