Southwell Minster Conservation Crafts and Trades Day


Southwell Minster in Nottinghamshire (NG25 0HD)

Michael Stokes (MDS Stained Glass Ltd)  and Alan Wahlers (Nottinghamshire Architect) are co-organising the second Conservation Crafts and Trades event day at Southwell Minster 

The first event organised in 2012, proved to be very successful, displaying over 40 businesses involved with the conservation sector, both local and national. It was featured in Church Building and Heritage Review issue 136. There will be probably as many exhibitors this year on show in the Minster’s nave and crossing, with a wide range of specialist conservation businesses involved in the preservation of historic buildings and their contents. This year’s event will include a broad range of specialists, including timber preservation, book binding, stonemasonry, organ builders, stained glass, church window protection and casement renovation, ecclesiastical builders, joiners, lime and mortar suppliers as well as charitable organisations such as the Nottinghamshire Building Preservation Trust, the Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust and the National Churches Trust, offering advice and information about grant funding and other support for churches. The splendid setting of Southwell Minster will provide a fitting venue for such a wealth of conservation crafts and trades.

Refreshments will be available at the Minster.
