Tales of Transformation, Inspiration and Perspiration
Friday 20 May 2022 **cancelled**
Speaker: Caroline Maguire
The majority of assets on the Heritage at Risk register are listed buildings. The Historic Environment Division works with owners, developers, heritage groups, building preservation trusts, local communities, and other stakeholders to find solutions for the issues faced by these assets and to help realise their latent potential. Once such structures are lost they are gone forever and it is important that we work together to seek solutions.
This talk will focus on Heritage at Risk and the work of the Historic Environment Division’s architectural team over the years. A reminder of some of the many great ‘rescues’- large and small - in recent and not so recent times.
Please note: Unfortunately this event has now been cancelled, we apologise for any inconvenience
