The Master’s House Website Development

The Challenge

The Master’s House in Ledbury has been at the heart of the town’s life for more than 500 years. It started life as a home for the Master of St Katherine’s Hospital and was restored and redeveloped between 2011 and 2015 so it could return to its place at the centre of the community. Today, it houses the town’s library and community resource area.

The Friends of The Master’s House in Ledbury are group of volunteers that oversaw saw the building’s transformation and take responsibility for ensuring it remains a vibrant, thriving hub for the community.

The volunteers knew the building needed a website to provide useful information about the building’s history and, crucially, advertise the talks, activities, courses and exhibitions that take place there.


The Solution

Over time, the Friends of The Master’s House had evolved a strong identity that it uses on its leaflets and literature. It had been inspired by some of the graphic work that had been undertaken as part of the building’s restoration and redevelopment. It was important to carry through this identity onto the website.

The site has a simple, straightforward feel and is easy to navigate so it will be accessible to visitors of all ages and internet abilities. It makes good use of the wealth of information that the Friends had about the building’s history and redevelopment. It also features an easy to use What’s On section that allows visitors to find out what’s happening at The Master’s House.
