Sensitively combining heritage and technology, a state-of-the-art digital hub has opened in a 300-year-old Wiltshire mansion.

Leaders of Wiltshire Council, VIPs and members of the press attended the opening of the £2.5M redevelopment within Corsham Mansion House, a previously vacant, landmark building in the town centre.

The historic, Grade II-listed property has been sensitively refurbished to include flexible working spaces, a large informal meeting area and a new glass-fronted main entrance.

Digital Mansion House will provide a range of facilities for local digital start-up businesses, further encouraging the growth of the region’s tech sector.

Paddy Bradley, Director of the Local Enterprise Partnership, said, “The Digital Mansion House Corsham is a great example of how the economics of the area are growing and changing.

“This is a project which demonstrates our economy has strength and is willing and able to adapt to new challenges. The building will provide a great base for businesses in our area for the future.”
