Conversion was approved in 2004, but work didn’t begin until 2006 then was interrupted by the 2008 financial crash. Development stalled and the condition of the buildings deteriorated until 2017 when the site was acquired and the project completed by Ascent homes (at the time, the house-building arm of Northumberland County Council’s Arch Development Group).
