Building skills and capacity to deliver priorities.
|Organisation:||Conservation Group, Technical Research Unit, Historic Environment Scotland|
|Project title:||The Ridge|
HES Staff worked closely with a charity in Dunbar to regenerate a derelict garden and train jobseekers in a range of practical skills. Supported works included the re-building of garden walls, excavation with community archaeology groups to allow re-use of parts of the garden, and consolidation and repair of derelict buildings. This programme has successfully trained a group of people in construction labouring, preparation of traditional mortars and rubble wall building. A Refurbishment Case study has been published that describes the works and will allow others to look at the feasibility of replicating a similar project.
