Experts on hand to help historic home owners

Owners and occupiers of historic buildings in the Yorkshire Dales National Park will have a chance later this month to get expert advice on how to look after them.

A special, one-day event has been organised by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) at Gayle Mill on October 22 – and places are being snapped up fast.

Gaby Rose, the YNDPA’s Building Conservation Officer, said: “The event always proves to be very popular, and once again we have a very full programme of speakers who will cover a wide range of topics.

“The day is split into three sections – the architecture of historic buildings, historic buildings in modern life and the maintenance and construction of historic buildings – and we hope people will go away with a huge amount of useful information.”

Speakers at the event are Gayle Mill’s Heritage Education and Training Co-ordinator Samantha Belcher, historic buildings consultant Jonathan Ratter, conservation architect James Innerdale, and historic buildings contractor Kevin Woods.

There will be an entrance fee of £15 per person that will include a buffet lunch and tea and coffee.

Gayle Mill is an 18th century listed building which still contains much of its original machinery. It has been carefully restored and is run by the Gayle Mill Trust as a visitor attraction and skills centre.

Places are limited so booking is essential. Cheques should be made payable to the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and sent to the YDNPA’s Yoredale offices in Bainbridge, Leyburn, North Yorkshire, DL8 3EL.
