Reviews

"Caring for Our Built Heritage, Conservation in practice, is a must for all those involved at the practical end of the 'heritage' industry...an extremely useful and well produced book." - BURA News

"This is a highly attractive and very informative book. It picks up a considerable amount of information, gleaned from experience gained in the schemes it describes. It must provide a good source of reference for any owner, society or local authority and is well worth purchasing for the information it contains" - Conservation Bulletin, RICS
