Friars Mill wins Leicester Civic Society Award
Friars Mill was recognised by Leicester Civic Society this week, winning its Restoration Award 2016. The society’s chairman, Stuart Bailey, described the project as “a remarkable restoration from ruin [that] we consider to be a wonder of the age”.
He added, “This is undoubtedly an emblem of our city’s renewed pride. A tour taken inside the great roof timbers to see the new cupola and the famous golden ibex, as a skylight, was breathtaking.”
