‘It stank. It was crumbling. It was riddled with deathwatch beetle and wet rot,’ says media lawyer Amanda Bannister about the 19th century former Baptist chapel in Wiltshire she and her husband Edward bought back in 2001. Not only was the Grade II-listed building in dreadful repair, there was no guarantee they would get planning permission to turn it into a residence. Oh and the front ‘garden’ was a graveyard of falling down headstones.But Amanda and Edward weren’t daunted. ‘It was this enormous stone building in the middle of a field for £100,000!’ And Edward, a property lawyer, believed he could find a way through the planning quagmire.
