Conservation Skills Centre at The Buscot and Coleshill Estates

Across the UK traditional building skills and rural crafts are in decline. The increasing skills shortage within the conservation sector means that knowledge is being lost, putting our heritage structures at risk. Our Conservation Skills Programme based at the Home Farm in Coleshill is a hub for education and knowledge-sharing.

What is the Conservation Skills Centre? 

Our aim is to retain and develop conservation skills knowledge and expertise for the future. Through knowledge sharing we want to help others to protect and conserve their heritage assets and the natural environment around them.
