July 13th, July 20th, August 3rd and August 10th (2012) 10am-1pm, Grenoside Community Centre (FREE)

the Industrial Heritage programme is funding an Industrial Heritage summer school this July/August consisting of four practical sessions aimed at helping community groups to conserve and protect Industrial Heritage in their local areas. The workshops will be delivered by a range of heritage professionals and will include visits to local sites of interest. In brief the workshops will comprise:

Session One (July 13th 10am-1pm): The National Picture

How is industrial heritage protected nationally and how is this changing? How can you find out what is protected and what this means? How do you put something forward for protection?

Session Two (July 20th 10am-1pm): The Local Picture

How can you protect industrial heritage at a local level? How does the planning system work ? Find out about local listing and provisions for industrial heritage in the new Localism Act (2011) as well as the CBA's role in local heritage protection. 

Session Three (August 3rd 10am-1pm): Local Character and Distinctiveness

Looking in more detail at local priorities - how do you work out what matters and why? Find out more about local sites of interest and discuss practical conservation issues. 

Session Four (August 10th 10am-1pm): Putting it into Practice

How can you get involved? Find out more about the work of the Grenoside History and Conservation groups and discover what other groups can do to protect industrial heritage in their own areas, including advice on creating a Village Design Statement and developing local lists. 


The workshops are all free, however they are intended to be treated as a series and ideally participants should be able to attend all four if at all possible. If you are booking on behalf of a community group and would like to send one or more volunteers to different sessions that would also be fine. To book a place please contact our Industrial Heritage Support Officer. A poster for the summer school is available on our downloads page. 

The summer school will be delivered by the Council for British Archaeology in collaboration with the Grenoside History and Conservation Groups and the Grenoside Reading Room Trust
