PCA is proud to announce that one of our conservation projects has won a prestigious award.
St Peter’s Church in Knowstone, Devon, won the John Betjeman Award at The SPAB Heritage Awards ceremony. The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings’ award recognises excellence in the conservation and repair of places of worship.
The project involved the restoration of wall paintings, a rood loft stairway and early joinery. PCA’s Paul Carpenter worked with architects AJ Bunning and archaeologist Dr Stuart Blaylock. The wall painting conservation was carried out by McNeilage Conservation and the timber work by Hugh Harrison Conservation.
PCA advised and liaised with timber and plaster conservators on the structural repair to the rood screen stone stair shaft and other stonework repairs.
The SPAB Heritage Awards were held at Conway Hall in London and were hosted by Grand Design’s Kevin McCloud.
