New offices, coffee shop and restaurant proposed for former ‘Brunswick Yard’ building at Rolle Quay in Barnstaple

Plans have been lodged to transform a derelict listed building at Rolle Quay in Barnstaple into a new coffee shop and restaurant.

Stuart Maskell of Longclose Ltd is applying to North Devon Council for a change of use for the listed former warehouse known as Brunswick Yard to create offices on the top floor and a coffee shop or restaurant downstairs.

It follows on from his completion of the 12 Brunswick Wharf apartments on the River Yeo site in North Walk, which are now all sold bar one.

Formerly known as the Boathouse Brunswick Wharf, the familiar Barnstaple building was constructed in the 19th century by the Gould family.

RGP Architects has designed a glass and steel extension that would adjoin the building and give customers the effect of ‘floating’ over the quayside.

Mr Maskell said this work would finish off the site: “The whole idea is to bring a derelict listed building back to life and have it used again rather than just being a builder’s yard,” he said.
