A major part of my work is as a heritage/historic buildings consultant and I often work with Caroe Architecture Ltd, and am also an Associate of Cambridge Architectural Research Ltd. I have been a principal or co-principal on conservation management plans and conservation plans and heritage statements on the following properties: Old Palace, Ely, St Paul’s Cathedral, upper levels, The Old Deanery, St Paul’s, Nyman’s (NT), Red House(NT), Chartwell (NT), St Alban’s Town Hall & Museum (HLF project), Emmanuel College, Cambridge. This work includes both research, and refinement of understanding and development of policies to protect significance, as well as project management, including consultations, and stakeholder engagement and workshops. These high-level reports play a crucial role in the development and protection of sensitive sites and buildings of historic importance.
I also work for select clients advising on the development of new country house designs.
I am also currently the Hon Tutor to the Plunket Scholars of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, guiding the Lethaby scholars at the outset of their three months visiting British country houses to widen their outlook and experience for their future careers. I also sit on the Ely Cathedral Fabric Committee of experts who advise on the conservation and architectural matters relating to the cathedral, under the Pastoral Measures and sit on the board of the Country Houses Foundation, an as a trustee of the Stowe House Preservation Trust.
I have already sat on a series of expert committees including the Victorian Society Buildings Subcommittee (south), the Council for the Care of Churches, the Council for the Care of Churches (Sculpture and Furnishings subcommittee), the Pevsner Architectural Guides Trust and chaired the Peer Review Panel for the Churches Conservation Trust. From 2012, I have been a judge for the Hudson’s Heritage Group Awards, along with Norman Hudson, Lady Lucinda Lambton and Simon Forrester.
