A Design & Conservation Award

The highest level of recognition goes to All Saints Church and Halliday Clark, local architects, for the detailed design & specifications of the contemporary design of a new link building between the church and Church House and reordering of All Saints itself, based on an original concept by Overtons architects.

The civic society was impressed at how the project has created a much more flexible space within the church and an additional space and facilities in the link building. The quality of materials and workmanship much of it local was another positive feature. Interpretation and education also feature well in the project to create a much more useful facility for the community.
