Myddleton Grange, Ilkley

Title: Myddleton Grange, Ilkley

Client: Catholic Diocese of Leeds

Value: £1.6m

Built on land adjoining the historic fourteenth century Myddleton Lodge, this design & build project proved an attractive, contemporary addition for repeat client the Diocese of Leeds.

The scheme included the construction of a church with terned stainless steel roof, library, public rooms and a 46 bed residential youth retreat.

The site presented several challenges, chief of which were the exposed valley side and boggy ground conditions resulting from local watercourses, which we overcame with additional land drainage.
