Buxton Crescent Heritage Skills programme

We are delighted to be delivering a number of heritage skills taster days at this very significant building conservation and regeneration project, to enable local people to gain an insight into the specialist skills being deployed.

Buxton and Leek
Developed in conjunction with the main contractor, Vinci, the skills sessions for local building tradesmen, construction college students and Buxton homeowners, involve tours of the construction site to meet the specialist subcontractors engaged on the project. They offer a chance to handle traditional building materials and ask questions about the techniques being used to conserve this important grade 1 listed building.

The £52m project is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic England, D2N2, High Peak Borough Council, Derbyshire County Council and the private sector developer, Buxton Crescent and Thermal Spa Ltd. A short video of the first skills day for local building tradesmen has been created by local media expert, Andy Parker, and provides an evaluation of this thoroughly enjoyable day.
