Bill was Landmark’s first full time craft trainee, he says: 'I first worked for Landmark as a labourer on the restoration of Belmont in Lyme Regis. I’d done general labouring on ordinary construction sites before, but this was totally different: the materials, the techniques, the skills and the change of pace were a real eye-opener; it all just felt more meaningful, somehow, and I was hooked. I loved how with heritage projects you can make your mark without compromising what has gone before. I stayed on with Landmark as an apprentice working on maintenance across the country, then Landmark found a supporter to fund my training. Thanks to her amazing generosity, I was able to do my NVQ, specialising in heritage carpentry and joinery. Now I’m fully qualified and am joining Landmark’s south west team as a craftsperson.'
