Blacksmith’s receives makeover whilst still retaining classic features
It may not be immediately obvious on a first visit to Adelphi’s premises, but the Adelphi Group of Companies in fact occupies a rather large site, which includes an old Blacksmith’s built prior to Adelphi moving the business to the current site in Haywards Heath. Work began last year to restore the building and convert into a highly attractive office, and in January this work was finally completed, with new tenants moving in shortly after. Extra care was taken to retain the original features of this building, including the style of the windows, addition of the lamp posts, as well as a copper wall mounted lantern to mimic the original.
Here you can see the original building photographed in 1921 along with the current restored building today.
