Historic buildings day school to be held at Burnsall Village Hall
9:00am Sunday 6th October 2013 in News
Owners and occupiers of historic buildings in the Yorkshire Dales National Park will have the chance to learn more about ways of looking after them at a special day school next weekend.
Called Caring for Your Historic Building, the event will be held next Saturday, October 12, in Burnsall Village Hall and will include guest speakers as well as outdoor practical demonstrations and a guided architectural tour through the village.
The annual day school will run between 9.30am and 5pm and has been organised by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) in partnership with Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Gaby Rose, the YDNPA’s building conservation officer, said: “The event is growing in popularity each year and it gets booked up very quickly.
“It’s aimed primarily at owners, managers and occupiers of historic buildings, but there is plenty of interest for people who just want to learn more about the architecture of the area or old buildings in general.”
Speakers this year include AONB Heritage Officer Sally Childes, historic buildings consultant and chartered building surveyor Jonathan Ratter, independent conservation architect James Innerdale and historic buildings contractor Kevin Woods.
The fee for the day school is £15 including buffet lunch and tea/coffee. Details and a booking form are available at yorkshiredales.org.uk
