Our History

The Building now known as “the Sanctuary” was originally built in the late 1800s as the private home and estate of the Bryant and May family famous for manufacturing matches. This beautiful period building subsequently became a high class Hotel then known as “St Andrews Hall”. Some original photographs of the past finery can be seen today displayed on the inner hallway walls.

Converted to flats in the 60′s finally becoming the Period office building it is today. A small area of woodland, a sanctuary for birds and wildlife, is situated opposite the front driveway and was the inspiration behind the current name of this prestige building. “The Sanctuary” emphasising a peaceful but central location.
