NHIG Award recognising exemplary conservation within the ironwork sector

The National Heritage Ironwork Group (NHIG) is excited to announce a new award recognising exemplary conservation within the ironwork sector.  

Given the vital role of conservation skills in safeguarding our built heritage, the NHIG is keen to create more opportunities to celebrate excellence specifically within the ironwork field.

The new NHIG Award will be presented for the first time at the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths (WCB) annual Awards Lunch in October 2022.

Work on any scale, in a public or private setting, is eligible. The judging panel will be interested in: 

• The appropriateness of materials and techniques used

 • The extent to which the loss of original fabric was minimised 

• The quality of the craftsmanship

Submission window: 13th January – 30th April 2022
