Our architects Hilary and David have been trying their hand at some heritage construction skills.


Aimed at industry professionals, the hands on workshops gave participants an understanding of Sustainable Refurbishment of Listed Buildings and an opportunity to attempt;

  • Traditional Roofing Skills and Leadwork
  • Lime Pointing and Black Mortar
  • Heritage Joinery Skills

The workshops were part of an event that introduced the Model Village at Bolsover, and gave an insight to the restoration of the village using the traditional skills. The event covered the background and historic context of the village, including the architectural challenges, design ethos and the works and construction delivery challenges. It also provided an insight into the community engagement activities undertaken on the project as part of the HLF Activity Plan. 


A tour of the village also displayed how the traditional skills, attempted by Hilary and David, had been applied to the development.
