Hearing voices

06 September 2013

HIS quick thinking saved the newly restored tower of Bath Abbey from being burnt down in 1954. Bryan Dring (above) was a stonemason working on the abbey's stone altar on Christmas Eve, when he was alerted to a fire and took action. He is now among those craftsmen and women who helped to restore the abbey between 1942 and 2000 who are recording their stories as part of the project "Creating Voices: Oral History" being run by the Abbey with Heritage Lottery funding.

More than 20 people have already come forward with their memories, but the project manager at the abbey, Oliver Taylor, would like to hear from any others.
