Awards recognise buildings' quality in Bath and North East Somerset
Buildings from a thatched country cottage to modern school extensions have won awards for the quality of the work that went into them.
Awards are given out annually by Bath and North East Somerset Council to recognise high standards of building work and design.
Among the winners were an extension to a thatched cottage in the Chew Valley, and new extension projects at Hayesfield and Weston All Saints Primary schools.
The awards, sponsored by the Bath Stone Group, are now in their 13th year.

"The winners cover the wide range of quality work undertaken in our area from small domestic extensions to larger commercial schemes and works to listed buildings. It is really good that our building control section can use this scheme to promote high quality in building construction and design in our area."
