The ‘North Ward’ housed SelClene’s Call Centre, once employing as many as 16 staff. This has now been downsized and moved to Twickenham, freeing up the room for use as a conference and training facility. Sounds grand but when not in use, any unused space becomes an untidy storage area (don't look).
Book a training event and we can tidy it up!
This was the first area to be refurbished and work commenced even before we 'completed' on the purchase of the castle. Painters moved in and spent a month painting the North and South Wards inside and out. This building has loads of windows so took a lot of re-grouting and painting work.
Shortly after completion, carpets were fitted, windows repaired, the original hospital lights re-wired for posterity and office standard strip lights hung from the tall ceilings, telephones and computers installed. Even the old hospital heating system was reinstated with the help of the previous owner, Dr. Jones.
14 years on, this area needs repainting again both internally and externally and several of the doors need replacing with new specially made doors in the style of the originals. It does not look as if we will take this building down and do the new-build we had planned, for the foreseeable future. So ideally we need to find a new use for the North and South Wards. Or convert them into self-catering apartments (one day).
