In England there are approximately 376,099 listed buildings and many of these are owned and inhabited by museums.
This training day, organised by the Historic Buildings Network, features speakers from Historic England and Heather Jermy, Head of Heritage Consultancy at Purcell.
Participants will learn:
- why and how historic buildings are listed
- what listing means for the owners and where they can get help and advice
- what it means to have a Scheduled Ancient Monument in your care and it might affect your museums’ operations
- understand Conservation Management Plans and the role they play in the care, management and development of historic sites
- how projects and issues have been managed at Norfolk Museums’ beautiful venues in Norwich, Strangers Hall, and the Bridewell Museum, with guided tours from the curators
For more information about the Historic Buildings Network, please contact the Network Co-ordinator, Clare Hunt, at Southend Museums.
Please note that Strangers’ Hall has a lot of stairs and no disabled access.
Refreshments will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch or make your own arrangements.
This event is fully booked.
