HERITAGE FOR AN NEW VILLAGE
At the heart of everything we do is the understanding of our past to help build our tomorrow.
Delivering our Solutions.
Heritage at Ellel Gardens.
The heritage opportunities of the site offer a unique introduction to some of the hidden heritage in the Lancaster District. As a dedicated heritage professional, I ensure that master plans make heritage the guiding light in creating new places to live, work, enjoy and explore. Forming the spine of the master plan, the heritage of the site is the driving force behind its overall design.
Ensuring we recognise our heritage and respecting their significance and their settings ensures we use our heritage to create spaces with a real sense of place and purpose. Home farm forms the heart of our village and provides for an untapped heritage resource, we will be making the best of our heritage and creating a new Ellel village.
Heritage for the future.
Whilst we claim not to have all the answers to perfect living, we do however, have heritage on our doorstep, which has helped inspire us, our buildings and your village. But we must look after it too, so future generations can also enjoy. We will protect our heritage for the future with modern methods; with sympathetic design, considerate landscaping and architectural design that compliments and enhances our heritage.
Ellel Gardens concept is using our past as we look to create our new future for Ellel.
The Heritage Experience
For heritage to work it must be seen, it must be used and it must be enjoyed. The history of the area is linked in many ways to the industrial development of Lancaster, with the sinuous Lancaster and Glasson Canals winding their way through our village, their calmness and tranquilly will help bring and reflect their qualities upon our new village.
The heritage of the canals including its locks, bridges and towpaths provide us with a vision of the past and today the canals play their part in our new community. Providing the main arteries of the Ellel Village the Canals will enhance access to and provide more connectivity to our heritage on our doorstep.
