THE Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard has won two prizes at the Civic Trust Awards.

It won the Michael Middleton Special Award – a memorial and tribute to Michael Middleton CBE, who established the Civic Trust Awards in 1959.

This is awarded to a restoration project or new build in a conservation area.

It also scooped the Civic Trust award.

The awards were set up to recognise outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment.

The 55th annual Civic Trust Awards Ceremony was held on Friday at Blackpool Winter Gardens and was attended by Robert Lapraik, deputy chief executive of The Mary Rose Trust.

Robert said: ‘It was a privilege to represent the Mary Rose Trust at the Civic Trust Awards. We’re all incredibly proud of our museum and it is fantastic to get recognition for this wonderful building.

‘We’d like to thank our architects, Wilkinson Eyre and Pringle Brandon Perkins+Will for designing such a fitting home in which to display these wonderful objects and where they can tell the fascinating stories of the men on board.’
