Restoration and conservation course

So during these past two weeks I have been researching into the Traditional Building Skills & Building Conservation Courses and Lectures which are run by the Historic Buildings and Conservation team at Essex County Council. This all for an upcoming feature, so I"ll make sure to not give too much away. The courses and lectures run by the council revolve around the conservation and restoration of listed buildings, of which I previously didn"t know too much about in the rules and regulations. Now, however, I will certainly be able to understand what is going on in the restoration programmes my parents love watch. One fact that I found surprising and a shame, was that Essex are the only known council to be running these types of courses and I think that more councils in the UK should follow in their footsteps, simply in the interest of keeping Britain"s history alive! Let us know if you feel conservation and restoration courses and lectures would benefit where you live!

Until next time,
