The Forge/Ross Wharf, Benfleet

Located in the South Benfleet Conservation Area, The Forge was a development of two 2-bedroom houses, and three 2-bedroom flats. The scheme was completed in May 2007, with all units sold off plan. Hedgehog Development subsequently purchased an adjoining site, on which Ross Wharf, a development of nine 2-bedroom flats, is currently under construction. Whilst all of the residential interiors at the Forge and Ross Wharf are of contemporary design, the exteriors of both developments were designed in close consultation with the local authority and Conservation Officer, making a positive contribution to their historic setting.
