George Back and Peter Hughes of RH & RW Clutton were delighted to attend the 24th Sussex Heritage Trust Awards Lunch on 6th July at Pangdean Old Barn, Pyecombe. Pangedean Old Barn was built in 1720 and has been lovingly restored and offers an intimate and atmospheric function venue set against the backdrop of the rolling South Downs just minutes away from Brighton.
RH & RW Clutton have been proud sponsors of the Sussex Heritage Trust Awards for a number of years, and this year again sponsored the Small Scale Residential Award. The awards were presented by the Sussex Heritage Trust president, Lord Egremont.
Regeneration very much lead the way at this year’s Heritage Awards. A yacht club, a primary school garden, a path wall, a sculpture and a sustainable regeneration project in the middle of Brighton are among 28 winners of the 2022 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards.
Winners and highly commended projects across nine categories from residential schemes to public and community buildings to commercial projects included the Circus Street redevelopment in Brighton (submitted by shedkm London), a mixed-use regeneration development transforming a derelict area of Brighton into a bespoke new quarter. Alongside residential apartments, the masterplan also included student accommodation, an office building, retail units and a new stand-alone building for South East Dance. The judges noted: “an exciting mixed-use scheme for Brighton with the buildings being most sensitively connected with the existing built environment. A tremendously successful project with commercial and public sector working together.”
The Awards also saw the announcement of the South Downs Award, sponsored by the South Downs National Park Authority – picked from Sussex Heritage Trust Award winners based within the National Park. One Garden, Stanmer Park in Brighton (submitted by Plumpton College) won the Award for the new walled garden, café and farm shop described by the judges as “a much needed, accessible space for everyone.”
