I’m pleased to let you know that our application to have Fawkham Manor listed has been successful.
The principal reasons for the decision for listing Fawkham Manor, designed in 1866-1867 by E B Lamb at Grade II are shown below, and full details of the listing came found on Historic England’s website: https://historicengland.org.uk/…/the…/list-entry/1472809
We understand that the planning application will now take this listed building status into account, with a decision expected by January.
REASONS FOR DESIGNATION
Architectural interest:
  • as a striking example of Victorian domestic architecture, reflecting a transition from the Gothic revival to a style informed by vernacular building traditions;
  • for its quality of materials, detail and craftsmanship applied to picturesque massing;
  • as a work which both typifies the idiosyncratic creativity of E B Lamb, and demonstrates his continuing inventiveness into the late stages of his career;
  • an externally little-altered work by a significant architect of the C19
Historic interest:
  • as one of E B Lamb’s last architectural works and a highly personal one designed for his own occupation.

Kind regards
