The Victorian Society urges Kinmel Hall’s new buyer to carry out critical repairs

The Victorian Society welcomes the sale of Kinmel Hall from Acer Properties Ltd at auction last week for £950,000. Rumours on Twitter suggest that a local family has bought the property.

The Victorian Society hopes that the buyer has the funds and ambition to prevent the historic mansion from falling into yet further ruin and will quickly carry out urgent repairs. The society encourages the new owner to contact them to discuss their plans for the Grade I-listed house at an early stage to help ensure that the plans for the future of this important Welsh building are both sensitive and suitable.

Critical renovations to Kinmel Hall are long overdue after years of lying empty. The Hall featured on the The Victorian Society’s Top 10 endangered buildings list in 2015. Since then, much of the interior has been stripped and the state of the building has deteriorated after the roof’s lead was removed. Time is running out for its survival.
