BBC News for 20th November 2009 spotlights the restoration of the 12th century Torre Abbey, Torbay: Lottery funding for ancient abbey.
Significant structural repairs have already been carried out to part of Torre Abbey, which is believed to be the oldest building in Torquay, Devon.
Founded in 1196, the abbey is listed with English Heritage as an ancient monument and has two Grade I and four Grade II listed buildings and historic gardens.
The site also has the Spanish Barn, believed to be one of the country's most complete early medieval barns which was used to house prisoners from the Spanish Armada.
It became a private residence following the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th Century and was bought by Torbay Council in 1930.
