He then lived and worked in the Torbay Area for 58 years, commencing an architect’s practice in the 1960’s to be awarded several environment housing medals, civic trust awards and designed buildings; some listed Grade II. Mervyn became a member of the 1970’s Torbay Design Panel which he left in 2012 awakening deep concern for the well-being and direction of Torbay’s Heritage, Environment and Open spaces.
