Repairing Cabot Tower

One of Bristol's most historic buildings could be back open in May.

Cabot Tower was built to celebrate the 400th anniversary of John Cabot's voyage to America, but was closed to the public in 2007 because of safety concerns.

Now over £400,000 is being spent on repairing cracks in the stonework and fixing the observation galleries.

Deputy leader of Bristol City Council, Simon Cook, told Heart more about the work:

The work is being paid for by the City Council and English Heritage.
