The Abbey Church in Dunbar is an important place at the end of High Street that has a large amount of community and council support for the reactivation of the building. It is B-Listed and was constructed in the 1850s, remaining in use until 1966 when it was closed. The current owners, Mr and Mrs Vidler, bought the building in 2015 and have plans to help it become a pillar of the community once again.
Sadly, it has had recent structural damage (more details here) with the roof collapsing in. Photo credit here.
Ideas for its end use in the past have included a community hub and an arts centre. Given the prominent location, a retail/commercial purpose would capitalise on the footfall of High Street.
At Grand Bequest we have created a formula that helps to understand how viable a potential conservation or restoration project is through an overall ‘Grand Grade’.
Total Grand Grade: 60.16
Adaptability Grade: 42.5
Cultural Significance Grade: 90
Social Benefit Grade: 84.2
Financial Sustainability Grade: 53.57
