The house is currently owned by the Old BuildingsPreservation & Restoration Trust, St Albans. There have been several previous attempts to purchasethe building and save it from being turned intoresidential use, which would mean it being lost forviewing by the public.In 2011 a local group of residents were shocked tolearn of the current owners intention to turn theproperty into flats and decided to form a committee topurchase the building. As a result St John’s HouseTrust (Bridgend), a registered charity (Reg.
