Is nearby heritage at risk?

Join the Tamar Valley AONB team next month for a FREE training day to discover the heritage assets on your doorstep and find out why they are so important.

Learn how heritage is protected and recorded in the Tamar Valley, and find out the answers to these, and other, questions;

  • Should we remove ivy from our old buildings?
  • Is putting a roof on an old derelict building the best way to protect it?
  • What is the impact of farming on archaeology?
  • Is conservation and preservation the same thing?

Holmbush Whim Winter 2010_11 copyThe day is organised and funded through the Helping Hands for Heritage project. Sam Barnes, Project Officer, says, “This is a great chance to look closely at our local heritage features. Many are not statutorily protected, but are locally and regionally very important. We will find out whether these features are at risk and how volunteers can help with their management.”

The event will begin at the Tamar Valley Centre at 9:15am on Saturday 13th December, with an informal workshop. Local archaeology expert, Iain Rowe, formerly of the Caradon Hill Area Heritage Project, will be on hand to explain all you need to know.

The day includes site visits in the Callington area by minibus, refreshments and lunch, and should finish at 4pm.

This session provides an opportunity to work towards an AQA accreditation. For further details, please contact Becki Lumbis – 01822 835030, rlumbis@tamarvalley.org.uk
