Hackney’s ambitious project to develop Clissold Park and restore the historic Clissold House continues to make good progress. Ced Ltd have been awarded the contract to supply Yorkstone for the hard landscaping area around the house. The park is a former country house and estate that was first opened to the public in 1889. Clissold House is of great historical importance and is a Grade II listed building.
Calum Fraser Commercial Manager for CED Ltd said “We are very excited to be involved with a project of such historical significance. With their careful choice of natural stone, the Contractor Mansells clearly support Hackney Councils vision to redevelop Clissold House and Park an an aesthetic manner. They have considered the sensitivity of the building’s original 19th century design when choosing the natural stone materials.”
The restoration project will return the Park and House to their former glory. Clissold House will include a new café with improved access for disabled people, beautifully restored function rooms and smaller meeting rooms for private hire and community use. Restoration to Clissold House
is due to finish this summer.
