Those of you living or working in and around Ashby de la Zouch may have noticed that works have recently begun on a prominent building close to the town centre.

The Fallen Knight Hotel, a listed building which has been vacant for a few years, has now begun its transformation into four townhouses and seven apartments, following a long process of design schemes and planning. These plans were originally conceived for the then owner, but has since been taken on and tackled in earnest by Lychgate Homes Ltd, a local development company.

The new dwellings will provide an old building with a new use – accommodation close to the town centre with easy access to all the facilities that come with a central location, along with private parking and garden space.

While progress so far has been mainly stripping out and demolition, there are some signs of the building being ‘put back together’ and things being put in, rather than taken out.

We’re hoping to keep you up to date with progress on-site as this prestigious development continues.
