Rejuvenation works completed at historic Lancashire hall

John Turner Construction was selected by South Ribble Borough Council to refurbish and extend the landmark Grade II listed Worden Hall, which is the centrepiece of the Green Flag Award winning Worden Park near Leyland, Lancashire.

Having been largely unused for almost a decade, the Hall and stables have been transformed into flexible community space with the capacity to hold small events and weddings. The removal of the old conservatory has made way for a beautiful new entrance and courtyard. Original features have been carefully protected and repaired while a new Folly Café, kitchen and office space have been created.

We have worked closely with the Architect and local Archaeologists to record and protect uncovered historic features whilst rejuvenating this much-loved building.
