God’s House Tower (GHT) is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade II listed building located at the southeast corner of Southampton’s medieval town walls. It is thought to be the oldest purpose-built artillery tower in the country.
The Project Aims are to reopen GHT to bring it back to its former glory. These works will include a new entrance, ground floor extension, lift and café. There will be plans to accommodate a unique mix of contemporary arts and heritage activities including various exhibitions. A key aspect of this project is to deliver a wide range of new learning and participation activities which will be inspired by the buildings rich history that will surely engage the local community and create new volunteering opportunities. Another aim is to create and establish new connections between major cultural developments in the city and enable GHT to play a prominent role in the city’s future.
A partnership between the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and ‘a space arts’ will lead to GHT creating a mixed-use heritage, arts, education and events venue. This new chapter in the life of GHT will breathe life back into the monument and re-engage it with the people of Southampton.
