Why SAVE Britains Heritage? Home Farm, Minley Manor?
SAVE has been campaigning for historic buildings since its formation in 1975 by a group of architectural historians, journalists and planners. SAVE is a strong, independent voice in conservation, free to respond rapidly to emergencies and to speak out loud for the historic environment – like Home Farm—Minley Manor
Threatened with demolition in January 2021 by long-term owner the Ministry of Defence, SAVE Britain’s Heritage helped secure a reprieve for Home Farm. Their submission and numerous comments on the application, including from the Yateley Society, resulted in Hart District Council’s decision in February to refuse demolition under permitted development rights.
We’ve been actively supporting an application submitted by SAVE to list our threatened Edwardian model farmstead. SAVE has now revealed a body of new historic evidence on Home Farm, including the architect Arthur Castings’ original drawings located in the RIBA archive held at London’s Victorian and Albert Museum.
