Redrow Homes held an Exhibition in Hughenden Village Hall on 17 May to seek comments on their emerging proposal for the redevelopment of the Uplands site in Four Ashes Road. Currently owned by DeVere Group, Redrow propose demolishing the existing historic building and conference facilities to make way for up to 16 executive homes.
Clearly no one was particularly enthusiastic about demolishing a significant building which over the years has devolved into a major training, conference and wedding facility, but at the time it was unclear of the historical nature of the building. Since then Marian Miller from the High Wycombe Society has written a preliminary report on a voluntary basis on behalf of the Buckinghamshire Archaeological Society (BAS) and the Historic Buildings & Landscapes Group of the Chiltern Society. A copy of the report is attached here.
