Binswood Local Area

The Grade II* listed Victorian Gothic building Binswood Hall, formerly known as North Leamington College, has been beautifully restored and forms the centrepiece of the Audley Binswood retirement village. Built to the usual Audley standard and retaining all of the character and majesty of the original building, the village has approximately 90 apartments and cottages.

A bit of History

First opened in 1847 Binswood Hall was designed by local architect Daniel Squirhill. Intended specifically for the purpose of being a school Squirhill was briefed to design a building reminiscent of the great Oxford colleges. It has also been said that the intricate brickwork was inspired by Hampton Court.

Throughout its history Binswood Hall has been through a number of transitions with extensions and facilities being added to it to improve its educational offering to the community. However, after many years of service the educational requirements of the town outgrew Binswood Hall and a purpose built facility was designed and constructed on the site of the current North Leamington College. Consequently, a once vibrant building was left empty and unused. Audley acquired the site in 2011 and embarked on an ambitious project to bring the building back to life and re-introduce it to the community as a retirement village. In May 2014 Binswood Hall re-opened its doors as a premier retirement destination in the beautiful county of Warwickshire.
