Refurbishment works to grounds

Kingshill House, Kingshill Lane, Dursley, Gloucestershire, GL11 4BZ
Kingshill House in Dursley, Gloucestershire, is an elegant Georgian mansion, dating back to 1705. Following a period of dis-use, the building became derelict and was boarded up. Since 1995, the building has been home to Kingshill House Ltd., a thriving community-based arts centre, which runs a varied programme of events, classes and functions. The organisation has undertaken extensive refurbishment and improvement works to the House.
Whilst works to Kingshill House itself are ongoing, the compact grounds were largely unimproved, so it was decided to improve the current mix of poor quality tarmac and uneven grassed areas. Kingshill House applied to The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust in October 2009 for assistance towards an appropriate and sustainable landscaping project and were delighted to receive a substantial grant.
