Aimed at heritage professionals, craft practitioners and the general public, the NHIG seminar Heritage Ironwork: an Endangered Species will explore how we can promote the survival of this threatened aspect of our shared heritage. Talks will address the questions:
- What is heritage ironwork?
- Why is it important?
- How is it threatened?
- What can we do about it?
Featuring a presentation by keynote speaker Mark Horton of TV’s Coast and Time Team on ‘Iron and the Coast’, talks throughout the day will explore and illuminate these pressing issues in different ways. You may already know something about historic ironwork or it may never have crossed your mind before – either way, you are very welcome to attend this seminar.
The programme for the day will include a walking tour of Bath’s heritage ironwork.
Tickets include lunch. There is an optional £10 upgrade to attend a Civic Reception at the Roman Baths at 7pm on Thursday 14th June to celebrate the opening of BathIRON.
