What Activities Are Going On?

Improving the knowledge and appreciation of the unique history and built heritage of Bacup through providing a wide range of community activities and heritage construct skills training for local people, building owners, local construction professionals and trades-people, is key to the success of the THI.

For example this built heritage is characterised by coursed local stone, stone flagged roofs, prominent chimney stacks, traditional sash windows and distinctive weavers windows. It is important that local building owners and trades-people are aware of the techniques involved in restoring and repairing these features, and that local people are aware of their value, as their loss would have a significant effect on the character of Bacup.

You can get involved in the THI by joining one of our community activity events or      heritage skills training courses held throughout each year of the project.

We've also just held an Open Day for the project where people could see what has been done so far, what is to come in future phases and comment on the consultation for the public realm street scene. To find out about this event please click here.

On Saturday the 10th of June 2017, a Hot Lime Pointing Course was held at St John The Evangelist, with 18 delegates from the local area in attendance. The course was very well received. Local residents have been educated on the lime based products and now have the confidence to use this on their period buildings.
