Shaw House, a Grade I listed house on the outskirts of Newbury, was built in 1581 and stands today as an extremely important survival of an Elizabethan house.  Over the years it has been a family home, a school and a dilapidating shell, but in January 2005 its restoration commenced and it re-opened to the public in October 2008.

This event is organised by 3CPD Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation offering CPD and social events across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties for RICS members and others working in the construction and property sectors.  3CPD is run by local chartered surveyors.
