A former Victorian school in County Durham is being turned into family homes following a six-figure investment.

Croft School was bought from Durham County Council by Langley Lodge Developments, triggering a transformation programme to create four homes, with four and five bedrooms. Langley Lodge Developments secured the investment from the North East Property Fund, which is managed by FW Capital and backed by the North East Combined Authority, to drive forward the project, which is now called Oakwood Court.

The project marks the latest for the Durham development company, led by Mick Brett and Peter Lee, which specialises in conservation and restoration projects. The company converted the Grade II listed Esh Winning Miners Memorial Hall into supported living units in a scheme which earned it a number of accolades, including an Architectural Award from the City of Durham Trust in 2013.
