Grade II* Listed Hotel Renovation

The Cross Keys Hotel and restaurant in Saffron Walden is a Grade II* listed building dating from the 14th century.

Hibbs & Walsh worked on the renovation and extension of the building, in close collaboration with Innventure Ltd and the pub company Charles Wells.

We provided a historical assessment of the building, revealing that it retains an interesting crown post roof and parts of the mediaeval timber frame. The assessment was used to justify the necessary changes and the extension of the building, and to validate the renovation techniques. We draw on our extensive library of specialist publications on the history of architecture and many years’ experience of working on listed buildings.
