Trust Annual Report 1998

 

Hockley Viaduct

 

Most of the ground work for a renewed application to list the Hockley Viaduct has been completed. However it has so far not yet been possible to enlist the support of Hampshire County Council or the Hampshire Buildings Preservation Trust. Therefore at the moment a new application can not be made.

 

Tony Langridge, Chief Estates Officer of Winchester City Council, Jeffrey Smith, Allan Weeks, and Dr. Edwin Corse have worked hard to assemble the evidence to support the listing application. Letters of support have also been received from Compton & Shawford Parish Council, CPRE and the Butterfly Conservation Society. We also understand that the Environment Agency is keen to see this structure listed and preserved. But for the moment little more can be done.
