The Institute of Historic Building Conservation visited Nenthead Mines on 24.10.14.
Their theme for the day was “Partnership Approaches to Heritage at Risk” which included the Alston Townscape project, Nenthead Chapel project, and Nenthead Mines.

After the visit, your scribe and Matt Town discussed the problems of flooding on site – informed by the cold and wet weather.
