Weymouth Civic Society Award 2017
Phase One of Lorton Park receives a commendation from Weymouth Civic Society
The commendation is made for new houses which form the first phase of a much larger scheme at Lorton Park, Broadwey. These attractive dwellings, in light coloured render with slate roofs, fit well into this rural location. They are thoughtfully designed to create a pleasant group, well landscaped, with low boundary walls in natural stone. There were a number of constraints on this site, including the power lines, several groups of trees, and the historic Old Rectory in the centre of the area, separate from this development. Care has been taken to retain the existing oaks and other trees, and to keep the spacious setting around the Old Rectory.
