The conservation project at St Mary Magdalene’s has been awarded the prestigious King of Prussia’s Gold Medal for church architecture, which recognises the best conservation project in a church in the UK in the past year.
King Frederick William IV of Prussia gave the medal in 1857, and it is now awarded annually by the National Churches Trust and the Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association.
At an awards ceremony at St Mellitus’ College, at which HRH the Duke of Gloucester presided, the medal was given by Prince Nicholas Von Preussen. Fr Henry was accompanied by Bethan Watson of Caroe Architects, and Lewis Proudfoot of Cliveden Conservation.
Vicar of St.Mary Magdalene & St.Peter, Paddington.
