Call for volunteers to survey listed buildings in Allerdale

14 November 2014

Volunteers are needed to help survey listed buildings in Allerdale.  A new project looking at the threat to some of Allerdale’s listed buildings is starting.

North of England Civic Trust, in partnership with Allerdale Borough Council, has been appointed by English Heritage to carry out one of nine test projects to survey Grade II listed buildings. The survey areas they are working on in West Cumbria will focus on the towns of Cockermouth, Maryport and Workington.

They will be working with local people to carry out the surveys of the outside of the buildings.  This will involve training keen and interested local people in what to look for when assessing the overall condition of historic buildings. The surveys will only look at the external features of buildings and will not involve internal inspections.

The Civic Trust are currently recruiting volunteers for the project; so if you live within a reasonable distance of the project areas and would like to get out and about looking at historic buildings, please get in touch. Full training will be given and support provided throughout the project. The project will run from late November 2014 until February 2015.

For more information please email Rose Lord, Conversation Projects Officer  or call 0191 232 9279.
