Tyntesfield wins English Heritage award
PUBLISHED: 15:00 23 November 2011
THE National Trust has received an award for rescuing and restoring the orangery at Tyntesfield in Wraxall.
The work by the National Trust, in conjunction with the City of Bath college and Nimbus Conservation, is being carried out on the kitchen garden building which had fallen into a severe state of disrepair.
This successful partnership, which has already seen a large section of the orangery restored, has now been recognised with an award from English Heritage.
The orangery project received the organisation’s Angel Award voted for by Telegraph subscribers and English Heritage members as their favourite project.
Tyntesfield general manager Anna Russell said: “We are so proud to have won such a prestigious award alongside so many other deserving projects. Being the public’s favourite is a great honour.
“Our partnership with the City of Bath college to save the orangery is going from strength to strength and gives us a great boost to continue our work to restore and conserve Tyntesfield in a way which people can get involved in.”
