It's raining on my head

Bodmin Jail – Built in 1779, Rebuilt in 2018.

With the unusually high levels of rain and snow we have been experiencing this winter, water is cascading through nearly five storeys of this grand old building, and parts of its’ structure are deteriorating rapidly.

The new building works and renovations will stop all this erosion and preserve the structure long past our own lifetimes.
