Church Conservation: An Impossible Task? - York
How do you care for a thousand-year-old building? Find out as part of York Festival of Ideas!
What does it take to care for a building that has been standing for a millennium? The Churches Conservation Trust has saved over 350 historic church buildings across England, including the hidden medieval gem of Holy Trinity in York, whose recorded origins go back to 1082.
Join the Churches Conservation Trust for a free day of drop-in activities and find out how a church building is cared for. Spot issues around the building on your own ‘eye spy’ condition survey, learn about object conservation, handle the Trust’s collection of medieval tiles and be inspired to make your own to take home!
This event is suitable for all ages. Please note children must be accompanied by an adult.
