Wellingborough Civic Society has presented its annual prize for contribution to borough aesthetics to Morton Wykes Kramer Architects for the Sun Lane housing.

Society chairman Shena Krupin, pictured handing over the plaque to architect Dominic Kramer, said: “It was in a dreadful state before.

“This project blends in with the conservation area in Broad Green. It’s also brought some purpose to the town, because it’s social housing.”
