Fortescue Fields – 11 Jun 2013
The first phase of a new mixed-use development, Fortescue Fields, in the heart of the Somerset hills in the village of Norton St Philip has just been completed. The new neighbourhood has been built on the site of a derelict chicken processing factory and extends one of the most attractive and desirable villages in the South West. Designed by Robert Adam of ADAM Architecture, the new area reflects and adds to the traditional character of Norton St Philip. Natural stone and locally sourced materials have been used wherever possible and each of the 55 houses is different. The first phase includes a new shop for the village, commercial uses, a striking new public building alongside houses and apartments. Later phases will include retirement homes and apartments.
