Annual Awards

Each year, the Association presents a commemorative plaque (the Quayle Award) to the owners of a building within the town or surrounding area which has, in the judgement of the Association, improved and enriched the town or village environment aesthetically by a good new design or through sensitive restoration.

The award is named after the late Professor William Quayle, a distinguished local resident who had a particular interest in architectural issues and the built environment. Public and private buildings, churches and chapels, pubs, shops and workplaces are all eligible and new buildings, restorations and renovations are considered.

The award is primarily aimed at recognising and encouraging improvements to the quality of the built environment but there may be occasions when some landscaping and or street “furniture” could be considered, because it had made possible a greater appreciation of the quality of a nearby building or group of buildings.

The shortlist for the 2015 Quayle Award is

  • The extension to the agricultural market, Glasdir
  • Extension to Genus Breading
  • Interior renovations and alterations at the Myddleton.

The joint winners are :

  • The extension to the agricultural market, Glasdir
  • Extension to Genus Breading.
