The Esplanade: During the early 1970s, The Esplanade was considered as a site for a potential home for theatre in the round. The intended space - later developed as Dulverton Hall by the Church of England and opened in 2002 - was seriously considered through to planning applications being submitted. The site was abandoned followed opposition by local residents as well as an implication of geological issues on the site.
