Following the restoration of historic properties. Dave Myers is in Leicester, helping to restore the fantastic 18th-century Friars Mill.
This time, Hairy Builder Dave Myers is in Leicester, helping to restore one of the Midlands' most historically important treasures - the fantastic 18th-century Friars Mill. This derelict wool mill held great prominence in Leicestershire during the 20th century as one of Britain's leading textile factory, but today it is being brought back to life and transformed into offices.
Dave discovers the builders are keeping sympathetic-to-the-original architecture so that it looks the same as when it was built. He takes a boat ride on the River Soar with a team of eco warriors and helps clean up the lifeblood of the mill. And to complete the renovation work, Dave puts the mill's iconic chimney and cupola back in its place.
