Training for contractors and homeowners

The Heritage Skills Centre in Lincoln will be holding traditional craft sessions for contractors to help ensure that the skills required to maintain our historic environment are available in the future.

The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) will be running day courses for owners of historic buildings. These will be free of charge for those who live or work within the Greyfriars conservation area.

Volunteer research

We believe every building in the Greyfriars conservation area has a story to tell and volunteer researchers are helping to uncover the area's hidden past. We provide research training at the Leicestershire Records Office and work in partnership with De Montfort and Leicester Universities.

The findings from the research will be used to improve visitor's understanding of the area through walking tours, exhibitions and events. We are always looking for more volunteers so please contact us if you are interested using the details below.
