Treetops Old Portsmouth Road

Treetops Old Portsmouth Road

The site on the Old Portsmouth Road, as you leave the town it is on the left before the Park and Ride is reached at Artington, is scheduled for redevelopment.  The Developers requested an amendment to provide permission to remove an old house, which was subject to a listing, on the site.   The house is thought to date from about 1700 but much altered since.  It is believed to the building depicted in the painting of St Catherine’s Hill by JMW Turner.   

The Society with others objected to the building being de-listed to enable demolition.  Historic England has agreed that the building should remain as a Grade II listed building. The full report by Historic England can be downloaded viewed on this link.
