Priory Gateway in Malvern needs urgent repairs
10:43am Wednesday 29th August 2012 in News
MALVERN Museum has launched an appeal to raise £80,000 to save its historic building.
The medieval Priory Gateway in Abbey Road is one of the jewels in Malvern's crown, regularly photographed by tourists from all over the world.
But the ancient building, dating back to the 15th century, is suffering from the ravages of time and work urgently needs to be done to maintain the integrity of its fabric.
The museum will be launching its appeal during the heritage weekend on Friday and Saturday, September 8 and 9.
Gill Butler of the museum said: "Unfortunately our mediaeval gem is showing signs of wear and needs some tender care. It has buckled windows, eroded stone, rusting iron, crumbling mortar and a roof in need of repair."
