St James Priory restoration reveals bare roof


The bare roof of St James' Priory has been revealed during a £4.5m restoration of Bristol's oldest standing building.

Visitors got a chance to see the medieval roof stripped bare.

The work on St James' Priory was able to start after they received £3m of Heritage Lottery money.

The church is almost 900 years old and is also used as a treatment centre for people with addiction problems.

Robert Harding, project manager at the St James' Priory Project, explains a bit more about the scheme.
