A castle in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, has won a prestigious architectural award.
Astley Castle, a 13th-century fortified manor house has been named the Stirling Prize winner for 2013.
The award showcases the best building in the UK by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
The castle was rescued from dereliction by the Landmark Trust in 2012. They worked with architects to help save and protect the ancient castle.
We are absolutely thrilled that Astley Castle has been awarded this most prestigious prize, and hope it will encourage others to consider imaginative solutions for important historic buildings.
Astley Castle is a new departure, both for the Landmark Trust but also in the approach to ruined historic buildings. We are tremendously proud of a scheme which represents an original way of reviving a ruined building.
