Our expertise in looking after historic buildings has been recognised by the award of another new commission, this time from the Trustees of Eastbridge Hospital. The hospital comprises a collection of buildings in the centre of Canterbury, some of which date back to 1190.
We have been appointed to look after the care and maintenance of a number of the properties around the city that are owned by Eastbridge Hospital, although not the hospital itself.
While not listed, the eight properties, including Marlowe’s Restaurant – believed to be Canterbury’s longest-established restaurant – are part of the city’s history and need to be maintained with care and attention to detail.
The Trustees of Eastbridge Hospital – properly known as the Hospital of St Thomas the Martyr, Eastbridge – use the rental income from these building to support the charity, which is also responsible for the Franciscan Gardens and Greyfriars Chapel.
Here at Godden Allen Lawn we are delighted to have been asked to play our part in looking after the city’s history and supporting a long-established charity.
