POSTPONED Popular Historic England stone conservation CPD goes to York, 24 March

Participants in one of the Historic England stone heritage CPDs last year, pictured in the roof garden of Historic England's London offices. The event moves to York on 24 March.

The Historic England Stone Conservation, Restoration & Repair CPD days held in London last year were so popular that the event is now going on tour. The next will be on 24 March at Historic England’s offices in York (37 Tanner Row, York, YO1 6WP).

There is an agenda for the day below.

The event is arranged through the Natural Stone Industry Training Group (NSITG) and last year’s events attracted a mixture of stone and conservation companies and architects.

As the CPDs are presented through the NSITG they are subsidised by the CITB, so the price to attend is only £120 + VAT.

Judging by the response to last year’s events in London there will be a full house, so booking early is advisable. Email Claire Wallbridge at [email protected].
