Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council is currently working on ‘Rediscovering the Underbanks’, a townscape heritage project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The Rediscovering the Underbanks project aims to restore the historic built-environment and increase awareness of the Underbanks, a conservation area within Stockport town centre. You can find out more about our project on our website: www.rediscoveringtheunderbanks.co.uk
As part of the project, we are looking to increase heritage skills through workshops, demonstrations, and talks. The attendees of these events will be primarily building owners, tenants, students, and members of the general public. The key heritage skills that we want to focus upon are:
- Brick repairs and pointing
- Sash window repairs
- Slate roofing
We would require the events to be held in the local vicinity of Stockport- a venue can be provided and any further equipment/materials that may be required can be discussed beforehand.
If this is something which you would be interested in, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss arrangements, availability and budget.
