The Restora­tion Man


Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

Ge­orge Clarke meets re­tired busi­ness­man Bruce Woodall, who 30 years ago started to re­store a Ge­or­gian gazebo tower on top of Pem­broke’s me­dieval city walls – and has fi­nally taken on the chal­lenge of fin­ish­ing the job. How­ever, he dis­cov­ers that since his ar­chi­tect drew up the plans, con­ser­va­tion laws have changed, threat­en­ing to shut down the pro­ject for good. Ge­orge un­rav­els this lo­cal land­mark’s 500-year-old se­crets, find­ing its place in key chap­ters in English and Welsh his­tory – but has the gazebo tower’s story fi­nally come to an end?
