Traditional Buildings in the 21st Century

The Federation of Ulster Local Studies, together with the Glens of Antrim Historical Society and the UAHS, present Traditional Buildings in the 21st Century, a one day conference designed for historic building owners, including site visits, taking place on Saturday 25th April 2009.

This event is designed for anyone interested in our increasingly rare stock of traditional buildings. It should be of particular relevance to custodians of this fragile resource who are keen to breathe life back into their own building.

We will be using the fascinating Glens of Antrim Historical Society Clachan Project to investigate the potential of these clusters of dwellings within the Antrim Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Case studies from the Mourne Heritage Trust’s award-winning Mourne Homesteads Scheme will demonstrate how these buildings can be restored and upgraded to provide comfortable 21st century living accommodation.

Places can be booked through the Federation of Ulster Local Studies.
