A PENICUIK stonemason’s skill has been recognised in a craft development scheme.

Callum Plews (26) is one of three people chosen for the William Morris Craft Fellowship, organised by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.

The scheme is intended to give outstanding craftsmen and women the knowledge and expertise that are essential when working with historic fabric.
