It took up to 50 firefighters to bring the blaze under control, with water being drawn from the Hippo Lake when the engines ran dry. Despite the outstanding effort by services, the fire ripped through Spring Grove House to leave just four walls standing. Whilst it was not possible to save any of the house interiors, the kitchen and more recently added ‘south wing’ was less affected.
Spring Grove House was also head office of West Midland Safari Park and years of history and archive material was also lost during the fire, leaving staff and management the arduous task of recreating offices and records for years to come.
The ‘new’ Spring Grove House, which resembles a luxurious African residence transported from the great plains of Africa, creates a completely unique and unusual destination. The first major series of events will be to celebrate the festive season with a lavish programme of parties, put together by banqueting management and executive chefs.
Staff have worked painstakingly with English Heritage, the Wyre Forest Conservation Team, architects and interior designers and employed as many local craftsmen as possible throughout the rebuild. The finished result has been achieved through hard work, dedication and passion and it is now undoubtedly one of the most unusual and prestigious business and corporate hospitality destinations in the Heart of England.
