  • Bennet House- A Study House in Culross

    Bennet House- A Study House in Culross

    Dates:Mon 5 Sep - Thu 1 Jun Location:Royal Burgh of Culross Details View all events at this location

    Bennet House has sat unoccupied for around 20 years and the damaging effects of Scottish weather, combined with a lack of regular maintenance, have taken their toll on the building. Slipped and missing tiles, vegetation growth, water penetration, decaying wood and broken windows together with structural problems mean that the Bennet House is an a sorry state. In common with many important old buildings across Scotland this Building at Risk needs considerable investment of time, money and skill to bring it back to a condition where it can be occupied and used once more.

    Fortunately the Little Houses Improvement Scheme, NTS’ in-house building preservation trust, was able to purchase Bennet House in order to safeguard its future. The National Trust for Scotland and the LHIS have played a key role in the conservation of the historic burgh of Culross since the 1930s and Bennet House provides a wonderful opportunity to revisit the activities of this period through the restoration of another little house in the heart of the burgh.

    The idea behind our Study House project is to integrate this building restoration work with the visitor experience at The Palace, providing the opportunity for visitors to see and take part in “Conservation in Action”. From preliminary research to project completion the public will be invited to participate in a number of workshops on topics spanning the investigation of the structure through buildings archaeology to more practical activities such as repointing in lime and the repair of traditional sash and case windows. It is our aim that the Study House is delivered as a model for conservation in the community, and that Bennet House is given a viable new use which will ensure its preservation for future generations.
