Workers start restoration work on Westminster Abbey


14th December 2016

London, England: December 09 – A builder works on the framework of a window at Westminster Abbey. Along with repairing and restoring parts of the the 13th-century building – they’ll be working on turning some parts of it into a new viewing area that will be open to the public for the first time. It will also exhibit many historical objects from the abbey. The new space will cost around £19m, and will give visitors views down over the abbey buildings and the neighbouring Palace of Westminster. The work is due to be completed by 2018.
