Join us to learn about the history of Willow Court Farmhouse. Gain an understanding of the history of the C16th building & the project to conserve it. A selection of fun, Tudor themed activities will be delivered by Lady Lypett’s Household.
Willow Court Farmhouse, known previously as Boycott Farm is a grade II listed building hidden away in a residential area of Droitwich. Little is known about this local landmark, which has been uninhabited for decades, Worcestershire Building Preservation Trust has taken on the challenge to conserve the building, record its history and create six new affordable flats for rent.
Please note the farmhouse is currently surrounded by scaffolding and covered in a protective shroud. Whilst visitors will be unable to enter the building, Heritage Open Day provides a fantastic opportunity to view conservation in action and learn more about the ongoing preservation work on site.
All activities will follow relevant covid guidance.
The project is supported by the NLHF, AHF, Wychavon District Council and Platform Housing
