Number 9-10 Crescent Road was part of the Calverley Estate created by Decimus Burton, one of England’s foremost architects and urban designers of the 19th century.

Other buildings in the town designed by the architect include Trinity Theatre and Hotel du Vin, which was revamped by Decimus Burton to be more in keeping with the rest of the Calverley Estate in the 1830s.

The society hopes to turn the listed building into a museum.

Brian Lippard, Deputy Chairman told the Times: “It is early days, but we would like to turn it into a museum about Decimus Burton.

“Of course, this has to be viable, but we hope to be able to apply for grants and the National Lottery Heritage fund, especially as we are hoping to do some educational projects within it.”
