Repairs and adaptation: Cofton Hall, Cofton Hackett, Birmingham

Adaptations were carried out to convert the property into residential accommodation.

The work included repairs to the Grade II* 15th century Great Hall with its ornate oak hammer beam roof structure.

Here, King Charles I spent the night of 14 May 1625 before marching on to Chester, and the following day the Royalist soldiers set the hall ablaze to prevent it falling into the hands of the Parliamentarians. (HDA were not involved in the original refurbishment!)
