Heritage Skills at Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings
Work placements, site tours and training events are targeted at students and trainees and those already working in construction, such as contractors, craftspeople and other professionals, using the site itself as a tool for learning.
Hard hat tours will offer groups with connections to heritage, construction and local interests, behind the scenes access to see at close hand the complex repairs that are taking place to the roof, brickwork and window openings.
The focus will be on offering opportunities to a diverse range of people particularly those underrepresented in construction careers, young people and women.
Working on listed buildings, and the estimated 5.5 million traditional (pre-1919) buildings in England, requires particular skills and training.
