York conservation firm helps castle win architecture prize
A WARWICKSHIRE castle, recently restored by a York conservation specialist, has received a top architecture industry prize.
Astley Castle has been awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize for Architecture.
The castle was transformed from a derelict shell into a Landmark Trust holiday home over a 20 month time frame from September 2010 with William Anelay Ltd, based in Murton Way, working under architects Witherford Watson Mann.
William Anelay chairman Charles Anelay, the eighth generation of the Anelay family to be involved in the 266 year-old business, said: “This is the ultimate accolade for William Anelay for what was one of the most complex and challenging projects we’ve ever worked on.”
