Heslington Hall Ceiling

The restoration of an important 16th century pendant ceiling. Threatened with collapse, this powerful and unique plaster ceiling has been rescued and seamlessly restored to its original condition. [The invisibility, technical ingenuity and scholarship of this work combine to make it an example of restoration work of the highest order.  An award is a proper means of recognising the efforts of those whose work is defined as successful by not being evident.]

Architect: Holland Brown
Client/Developer: University of York
Presented by: Professor Sir Ron Cooke, Chairman, York Civic Trust
