Light Rooms ‘The Alternative Extensions’

advanced conservatories LEYLAND-based Advanced Conservatory Design Ltd are specialist Conservatory, Orangery and Extension builders covering the North West. Owner Ray Jackson has over 30 years’ experience of advising, designing and creating bespoke Orangeries and Conservatories. He heads a team of planners, designers, architects and builders who specialise in extensions which not only bring added value to the home, but are also energy efficient, fuel saving and beautiful to live in.

Ray, who is ultra-passionate about the growing business and the services involved, says: “If you are looking for bespoke UPVC designs, or ecologically sourced natural timber conservatories or orangeries, or a unique extension flooded with natural light, then we have the skills, experience and the solution to match your requirements. “We are committed to providing an energyefficiency focussed service for clients. We also provide a full range of UPVC and wooden or timber windows, including sliding sash and an extensive range of bi-folding doors.” Advanced Conservatories truly are a ‘one stop shop’ when it comes to conservatory Page 12


Simply Fulwood

design and build services. And the focus is always on energy conservation. “From conception to completion, we take care of it all, including planning permission and building regulations, where appropriate. “As an independent company, we have great flexibility in terms of design and product, and can work with you to create the living space of your dreams.

“Timber and timber-framed conservatories are becoming more popular. Our range of natural, ecologically sourced timber conservatory solutions can appear contemporary and traditional. They can be designed to fit in with the overall aesthetics of your building and project.”

Advanced Conservatory Design Centre Ltd prides itself on the capacity and flexibility to cope with any project, yet retains the ability to care!

‘...turn dreams into reality...’ Ray and his highly qualified team offer the full package and the proprietor is involved at every stage. Ray says: “We don’t have massive overheads, I personally manage everything that happens. You deal directly with me and I offer a full 10 year guarantee on all our work. Customer satisfaction, added value, positive and stunning impact, that’s what we are all about.” When it comes to conservatories, the choice is limited only by space, imagination or budget, even.

Victorian types are popular and extremely cost effective. Edwardians are modern and give added space, whilst Gable conservatories with large fronts offer dramatic use of space and light. All incorporate energy efficient glass, along with insulated walls and floors, adding value and enhancing quality of life. Once the preserve of exotic fruits, Orangeries have become an exciting way to extend the kitchen, dining room or simply to provide luxurious well-lit spaces for relaxation.

“Advanced Conservatory Design Centre are experts in the creation of such spaces and can turn dreams into reality. “We also offer a stunning range of timber conservatories, beautifully designed, attractive porches and windows to complement your existing property.” When costs are taken into consideration, an extension might be a more viable option than moving house. Advanced Energy Extension solutions go ‘one step further,’ bringing light to life and creating special, stunning places to live. “A new extension can be whatever you want it to be, they have never been so exciting! By clever light usage, roof windows, glass walls, bi-fold doors, you can bring daylight deep into the living space. It can make the whole room brighter, larger and more welcoming. “Forget about Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) - daylight has a positive effect on productivity, concentration and children’s learning abilities as well as general well-being” Whether it’s an extension, conservatory, orangery, porch, windows or general build to any specification, Ray Jackson is the expert. Give him a call at Advanced Conservatory Design Centre Ltd for a no-obligation consultation. Why go anywhere else? He’s got everything you need!

SIMPLY FULWOOD EDITORIAL Workhouses : An Historical Recollection

workhouses A few workhouses for the able-bodied poor were founded, from the late 17th century onwards, by local Acts. More were established under the Acts of 1722 and 1782. From 1722 parishes were allowed to farm out their responsibility for the poor to a contractor at a fixed fee. Gilberts Act (1782) allowed parishes to join forces in the erection of a workhouse, in an arrangement by which each parish paid the cost of maintaining its own poor but achieved savings by sharing the premises. The establishment of these 18th century workhouses is noted in the accounts of the overseers of the poor, but detailed records usually do not survive, since the operation was often let to contractors. By the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834 the whole of England and Wales was divided into unions of parishes, in each of which a board of guardians was elected to administer poor relief. These unions were often centred on a market town, and they sometimes stretched beyond county boundaries. The new Poor Law met with considerable opposition in the north of England. Each union built a workhouse to house those people who were in receipt of relief. Some unions merely took over existing workhouses, and others were slow to build their own. Contrary to the intention of the Act, the guardians often continued to pay relief to people who lived in their own houses. Workhouses gradually evolved into orphanages and hospitals, especially for the feeble-minded, the aged, and the infirm.

Workhouse Women In workhouses, families were split up and made to wear drab clothing deliberately intended to destroy individuality. A standard workhouse haircut also made them instantly recognizable if they went out in public. Inside they worked pointlessly at stone-breaking and oakum-picking. The situation gave rise to many philanthropic initiatives, such as the founding in 1878 of William Booth’s Salvation Army, which set up soup kitchens and hospitals to help the very poor. The old, the infirm, the handicapped and the able bodied poor were all accommodated together. Husbands and wives were separated into dormitories and not allowed to meet, and many children were housed separately from their parents on the premise of giving them a Christian upbringing.

Workhouse Children Orphaned and children of long term inmates were given basic education and training. And often from the age of 12 years, were apprenticed for up to seven years to work in the local community as domestic servants and farm labourers etc. where their masters were liable for their welfare. All able-bodied inmates, men, women and children were put to work locally or on onerous tasks such as scrubbing floors, laundry, breaking stones and picking Oakum.

Women picking Oakum* *Short lengths of tarred rope which had to be unpicked to be re-used for ramming between the planks on ships to make the decks etc watertight. In the mid-19th century some workhouses established schools for the children in their care, until local board schools were built in the 1870s. Children were finally removed from the workhouse in 1908. County and district councils took over responsibility for workhouses from the guardians in 1894. The system was replaced in 1948 upon the creation of the National Health Service. Simply Fulwood

SIMPLY FULWOOD EDITORIAL Workhouses : An Historical Recollection

workhouses cont... New Workhouse at Fulwood, Preston, Lancashire A new workhouse has been opened for the purposes of the Preston union. The building has cost between £40,000 and £50,000 and has been designed by Mr. Leigh Hall of Bolton. The site is at Fulwood, about a mile from Preston. Hitherto there have been five workhouses in the union, but the new establishment will do away with them all. Source: The Builder 1869 Vol XXVII 9th January 1869 p.033

This impressive building opened its doors for the first time in 1868. After the 2nd World War it changed its name to ‘The Civic Hostel’ and became a place for the destitute to stay overnight or until they could find other accommodation, and an ‘old folks home’.

It closed for a while in 1979 and later became the Headquarters of the Regional Health Authority, followed by being part of the University of Central Lancashire. It is now owned by local businessman Yousof Bhailok, who redeveloped the building as the Preston Business Centre, part of which is occupied by Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
