Isle of Axholme historic building courses

As part of the Heritage Lottery Funded Isle of Axholme Landscape Partnership project, Heritage Lincolnshire are delighted to be offering training sessions to volunteers which will help them identify and understand heritage buildings. This is the first in a series of training sessions, under their ‘Presenting the Past’ programme which sees them delve into the history and archaeology of three parishes within the Isle – Haxey, Owston Ferry and Belton.

The first sessions will concentrate on historic buildings and are as follows:

Introduction to Historic Buildings
Wednesday 21st February, 6pm-8pm, Haxey Memorial Hall

Reading Historic Buildings
Saturday 24th February 10am – 2pm, All Saints Centre, Belton

Heritage at Risk: Spotting problems and saving buildings
Saturday 17th March 1pm – 5pm, Corontation Hall, Owston Ferry

The courses are aimed at those with little or no prior knowledge and will provide an excellent introduction to identifying historic buildings and understand the materials and methods. Course leader, Kathryn Moore said, “My aim for these courses is that people will leave looking at Historic Buildings differently, with an understanding of how vital they are in the character of our places and to make sure that we safeguard buildings and sites for the future”

All the sessions are free and will include tea/coffee, however numbers are limited so please book in advance through or call 01529 461499. Further details can be found at Presenting the Past.
