The Trust is working on an urgent project to acquire the Ryder & Yates office in Killingworth.

This small building is one of the most important surviving post war buildings in the region and has recently been listed Grade 2 by English Heritage.

There is clearly potential to convert the building into a number of uses once the urgent repairs have been tackled.  Once repaired the building has a viable future.   

The Trust needs time to raise the necessary funds and is proposing to lease the building in the short term in order to save this important piece of history. 

This campaign will fund the initial feasibility study and will cover design, cost, structural and legal advice.

I was aware of this building and others by Ryder's whilst working in Killingworth - I was the project quantity surveyor employed by Gleeds and settled the final account for the Faulkner Browns building at £66060!!

I love this building but the opportunity to give it a positive future was compromised when Norgas House was demolished and housing built site right to its boundary. The next focus should be a future for neighbouring Engineering Research Station

I worked in the building for about 15 years and always enjoyed it. Mainly in the Ryder Nicklin years but starting before Peter Yates died.

Why not approach the Ryder company? Quite a few of them worked in this office.

The more I think about this building, the more I am sure that it is a very fine design. I cannot ignore this opportunity to give it my full support.
