Bodmin Jail to become a hotel, Cornwall

Architects have devised proposals to redevelop Bodmin Jail. The refurbishment would include the two wings of the derelict cell blocks where the new hotel would be housed, complete with glazed roof lights that would run the length of both wings creating a centralised atrium. The Grade II-listed building would be formed from three cells with interiors featuring colour and textures inspired by the aged, weathered stone. If permission is granted, work is planned to start on site in early 2018.
