Best Craftsperson or Apprentice on a Heritage Rescue or Repair Project
For example, it could be someone who has carved stone gargoyles for a church, repaired a historic window, or learned how to recreate Elizabethan bricks for a particular rescue.
The craft can be from any discipline, for example, woodwork, masonry, metalwork or thatching. It's also an opportunity to award apprentices where work has made a significant contribution to a restoration. This award also looks at those individuals who have trained apprentices to carry on their work.
The winner of the 2017 award in this category was Kenny Brunskill of Stone Technical Services for the repair of the Walkers Pottery Bottle Kilns (Corbridge, Northumberland).
This year's Historic England Angel Award winners were announced at the Palace Theatre in London on 20 November 2017.
