Diocese of Worcester
The 2011 award was presented by Michael Hoare, Chairman of the National Churches Trust, at Westminster Cathedral Hall to Acanthus Clew Architects for the New Sustainable Monastery, Mucknell Abbey.
"A new monastery is a big story for the church world – it has re-used existing redundant buildings, it has added interesting new buildings and it has good environmental credentials, all whilst offering a worthy function for the church. The Oratory alone is worthy of the award, let alone the whole development." Michael Hoare
