The winner of this year's 'English Heritage Conservation Award' went to The Sportsman in Huddersfield. Judges marked the pub out as an 'impressive, stone-faced corner building of 1930, designed by local architect Seth Senior in a neo-Georgian style, and was bought by new owners in 2009. The pub had been failing for decades: it had not served real ale for over 40 years, and was literally falling to pieces. The fine stone exterior, with its rows of densely-packed sash windows, has now been sensitively cleaned and repaired, and all 21 sashes are now in exemplary condition. The interior has been comprehensively improved by Mike Field, Sarah Barnes and their craftsmen."

What more can we say, a worthy winner - congratulations to all who had the vision to create the Sportsman into what it is now.
