EH Level 2 and 3 Recording for unusual buildings

We have just completed a Level 3 Recording of Broxton Lower Hall in conjunction with James Brennan Associates, who prepared rectified photographs. The timber-framed Hall has an early 16th century wing, recently revealed and part illustrated in the image below.

We have also just been appointed to undertake a Level 2 Recording of Cathedral House, Salford (a grade II* listed building attached to Salford Cathedral).  Now largely vacant, the building is about to be converted into priests' accommodation for the Roman Catholic Cathedral Diocese. Originally built as a seminary and Bishop Vaughan's accommodation in 1873-5, this new use provides rare continuity with its historical use.
