St Mary’s Church, Bridgwater - COMMENDATION
"This interior re-ordering project involved the removal of pews, re-laying the floor on a single level, new lighting and addition of kitchen and storage facilities in order to develop the use of this large church. The beautiful new floor, the imaginative lighting and the clever movable pews are particularly successful".
