Tenby Lifeboathouse from harbour wall - repurposed and restored

In order to avoid dereliction and decay (which affects so much of our built heritage), we favour creative conservation that exploits opportunity for re-use or new-use: history and character allied with modern purpose  incentivises preservation - and adds interest and meaning - and therefore VITALITY. Our conservation philosophy favours restoration and repair using appropriate technology, but, where significant interventions are required it is essential that they should be clearly articulated and of their time, so that the history is clear and the integrity of the original structure preserved.
