Annual Conferences and Autumn Meets:
Historic Environment Scotland, in collaboration with the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (Scotland), the National Trust for Scotland, and the Scottish Vernacular Buildings Working Group, invites you to come and discuss the future of thatched buildings in Scotland.
This one day event of talks and discussion will be of interest to all those who own or manage thatched buildings, and anyone with an interest in Scotland’s vernacular architecture. It is particularly relevant for local authority planners, building professionals, local heritage groups and estate managers. As well as considering the importance of thatched buildings in Scotland, and how to protect them for the future, this event will also present the findings of the SPAB survey of Thatched Buildings in Scotland, a unique gazetteer of thatched structures in the country.
Tickets are priced at £20 and can be purchased on the HES website.
Tickets are free to SVBWG members; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
This is a joint visit with the Cumbria Vernacular Buildings Group. We will visit the Glenochar Bastle ruin and its associated fermtoun remains, eat our packed lunches there – weather permitting – then see a model of the bastle, and the finds excavated from the site, at Biggar Museum. Following that there is tea provided by CVBG members Charles and May McKerrell in Lochmaben.
