Conservation Management Plan
In 2011, the Trust commissioned a Conservation Management Plan on the recommendations of English Heritage.
At the time, the Trust was considering an integrated development of the stable block and an associated new building to allow for larger gatherings than can currently be accommodated in any of the existing spaces of the house.
The plan therefore only covers Sharpham House and its stable yard, but it does so in very interesting and historical detail.
The house and stable yard are part of the larger 550-acre estate, which includes a landscaped park, created in conjunction with the building of the house, begun in c.1770. As the Trust’s activities extend across the whole estate, these buildings are used both in association with the wider estate and sometimes independently.
