To mark the European Industrial and Technical Heritage Year 2015 the Association for Industrial Archaeology with several of its close partners, including Historic England, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Princes Regeneration Trust, are hosting a seminar entitled ‘A Priceless but Vulnerable Asset: valuing and sustaining Britain’s industrial heritage’ on Friday September 4th in Brighton.

The morning session will be discussing the diversity of Britain’s industrial heritage, its protection, the funding and methods of its preservation, the threats to its survival and how the sector can emphasise its value to the nation’s identity and economy.

The afternoon session is devoted to the issue of sustaining that heritage.  It will examine the ongoing challenges presented by sites that have already be preserved, the support that is available, the role of volunteers and the way forward.
