Traditional developments in Yorkshire
Yorkshire is a historic county of Northern England and the largest in the United Kingdom. Within the borders of the county of Yorkshire are areas which are widely considered to be among the greenest in England, due to the vast stretches of unspoiled countryside in the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors and to the open aspect of some of the major cities. This is this reason Yorkshire has sometimes been nicknamed ‘God’s Own County’.
Famous for a number of reasons! Historians are fascinated by the antagonism between the House of York and the House of Lancaster which resulted in the series of civil wars commonly known as The War of the Roses. The most esteemed literary family from the county are the three Brontë sisters, with part of the county around Haworth being nicknamed Brontë Country in their honour. Bram Stoker also authored Dracula while living in Whitby. The county also boasts famous bands such as Def Leppard, The Cult, Sisters of Mercy, Soft Cell, The Human League and Pulp, Kaiser Chiefs and the Arctic Monkeys. A comedy film set in Sheffield named The Full Monty, won an Academy Award and was voted the second best British film of all-time. Yorkshire Television also produce two highly prominent British television shows, Heartbeat and Emmerdale.
Of relevance to Swift is the huge amount of talent that comes from this wonderful northern county. A garden music or art studio could be the perfect solution to enable you to indulge your passion for the arts. The Swift team are dedicated to creating a perfect, solution-focussed space for your chosen activity – somewhere where you can immediately feel comfortable, inspired and content. We aim to achieve a garden room that will suit your personality and your desired activities. We will do more than just adapt a standard model; we will create your room by designing it from scratch. We believe that your new garden room should either make a statement by contrasting with the existing setting, or match it as precisely as possible. Either way, the effect will show attention to detail and an eye for style.
A large extension project was undertaken in the small village of Skeeby, outside Richmond in North Yorkshire. Set in the grounds of The Old Mill, from a substantial self-catering holiday cottage, we have constructed a fully functioning performing arts studio. Beautiful and practical inside, and superbly well matched to the historic stonework on the outside, this building is a perfect example of modern technology and traditional appearance. SIP panel construction produces a robust and highly efficient shell, while a specialised “stone” cladding product has perfectly replicated the local building methods and materials of old.
Recently opened by William Hague MP, the building has been widely acclaimed and is set to be very well used. Please visit our clients website for more information about the centre: www.oldmillcentre.co.uk
