A presentation on the redevelopment of the Grade II listed Bodmin Jail, Cornwall. The vision for the jail is to return this much understated heritage asset of national importance to its former glory, and in so doing make it a leading visitor attraction & hotel.
The design retains and enhances the unique atmosphere and sense of history that exists in the ruins. The derelict cell blocks of the jail will house the hotel accommodation and part of the museum. Under the museum proposals, an exciting new build ‘Dark Walk’ experience will set the scene for visitors to appreciate the Jail’s vivid stories.
