Judges Lodgings Hotel renovation helps preserve city heritage
9:24am Thursday 5th September 2013 in Business news
YORK building restoration specialist William Anelay has recently completed the renovation of the Judges Lodgings Hotel in the city centre.
Working with Shire Hotels, the project, which started on site in January, included external and internal refurbishments at the Grade I-listed building, which dates back to the early 18th century.
Work included repairing parapet walls around the roof area, repointing and stabilisation of brickwork, repairing or replacing slate roof tiles, and refurbishing sash windows.
Tony Townend, managing director of William Anelay, said: “We are proud to have, once again, helped to preserve another piece of York’s valuable architectural heritage and we hope the hotel enjoys commercial success for years to come.”
Originally a private residence, the Judges Lodgings, in Lendal, provided accommodation for judges sitting in the Assize Courts from 1806 until the 1970s when it became a hotel.
