Talbot Yard Building AwardA disused, derelict, historic piece of Malton has been dramatically transformed into an artisan food production hub and has picked up a prestigious Building Excellence Award along the way.

Throughout the building process, Fitzwilliam (Malton) Estate worked closely with various organisations to ensure a most sympathetic and yet functional redevelopment. Regular contact with Ryedale District Council and English Heritage officers was maintained throughout the scheme and consistent contact with North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership ensured compliance with the Building Regulations was also undertaken.

Contractors Stephen Pickering Traditional Building Services Ltd and J G Masonry (Builders) used as much of the historic fabric, traditional building materials and traditional techniques as possible in the process of the refurbishment of this former 18 th Century coaching yard.

Talbot Yard Food Court won in the ‘Best Refurbishment or Extension of a Listed Building’ category at the 2016 LABC North and East Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards.

“Talbot Yard Food Court is a deserved winner of this award” said Les Chapman, Head of the North Yorkshire Building Control Partnership. Les continued “Every care has been taken to ensure that the building has retained its original charm in its new life as a bespoke, artisan food court, with great attention to detail paid at every stage”

Tom Naylor Leyland of Fitzwilliam (Malton) Estate commented “We are naturally delighted to have won this prestigious LABC award. The food and drink produced in Talbot Yard Food Court is delicious but we do think it tastes even better being made in such pretty surroundings”.
