Illustrated conservation principles

Blacksmiths, why not show off your best, most ethical work to a wide audience for free?

The NHIG is working on producing an illustrated version of our conservation principles. Now is the the time to get your work featured as examples of excellent conservation practice. Provided they meet our standards set out in the fifteen Conservation Principles on our web-site, we’ll publish your photographs at no charge, space-permitting.

Selection is at the discretion of the editor, and by submitting your photographs you give permission for them to be published. Please indicate how you would like them credited.

You need to send clear, good definition .jpg or .pdf photos with up to 500 words explaining which of the fifteen principles they demonstrate and why. Of course your case-study, or studies, may well demonstrate several conservation principles. We are particularly interested in examples where unusual technical, financial or contractual challenges have been overcome without compromising standards, so please explain these.

Please see the NHIG Conservation Principles for more information

Please e-mail me your pictures at before Christmas.

Many thanks,


Geoff Wallis
