About Us...
The house is currently owned by the Old Buildings Preservation & Restoration Trust, St Albans.  There have been several previous attempts to purchase the building and save it from being turned into residential use, which would mean it being lost for viewing by the public. In 2011 a local group of residents were shocked to learn of the current owners intention to turn the property into flats and decided to form a committee to purchase the building. As a result St John’s House Trust (Bridgend), a registered charity (Reg. No. 1147340), was formed in May 2012. St John’s House Trust (Bridgend) is committed to purchasing St John’s House and making the property available for viewing, to inform the general public and providing an educational provision for the young people of Bridgend and its surrounds. We aim to                      provide a focal point in the local neighbourhood to                     meet and respond to the growing needs of ‘Community’                     in the area.  We will offer a building that can be used                     by the public to meet in a safe, secure and fun                       environment making a positive contribution to                                the community. In Bridgend there are four Grade II* listed buildings,         Newcastle Castle, Newcastle House, St Iltyds Church and St John’s House, all within the Newcastle Conservation area, we see St John’s House becoming a ‘hub’ for the history in this area.
