Barn in the running for awards

THE Tithe Barn in Nailsea has been short-listed for two prestigious awards.

The historic building has been nominated for a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) conservation award as well as a People’s Choice Award, which will be decided by a public vote.

Rod Lees, chairman of Nailsea Town Council, said: “RIBA is a highly professional organisation and I think it’s a fantastic award to be nominated for.

“Being in the construction industry all my life I know it’s pretty hard to get an award from RIBA. It’s the result of three or four years of work that’s gone into the project.

“The quality of the plans that were drawn up and the quality of the materials used by the architects is really fantastic.
