Restoration Man George Clarke’s closing verdict
tonight on the Hinchliffe renovation of the
Grove Road Chapel in Harrogate:

“Mark’s infectious energy has saved not one but two local landmarks and it’s taken him nearly four years of hard work, dedication and courage to make that happen.

“Yes, it’s quirky. Yes, it’s an eccentric collector’s house but, my word, it is magnificent.”

“It’s an amazing home. That’s what it is: a unique, brilliant, magical, wonderful home. I’ve never seen anything like it. The sensitivity of Mark’s restoration has been truly respectful to this grand building. It’s now a home and a unique place for future events and unique gatherings – a focal point for the local community.”
