Thursday, 2nd May | 1:00-3:00pm | On site at 19 Mirrlees Drive, Glasgow, G12 0SH

Join GCHT and the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) for a unique CPD opportunity at the Trust’s recently acquired property on Mirrlees Drive. 

Designed by the architect John A Campbell in 1906, the Category B-Listed townhouse is a former residence which is now being restored by NTS.

In this CPD, you’ll get a chance to see in-situ the works NTS is doing to conserve and protect the building, including re-slating the roof, fixing the lead flashings, valleys and ridges, and stonemasonry repairs to the chimneys. There will also be an opportunity to look at the inside of the house to help understand the effect of the failures NTS are working to repair.

PPE is required (high vis jacket, site boots and hard hat), please email events@glasgowheritage.org.uk to let us know if you aren’t able to bring your own. 

£10 per person / £5 for students


All sessions are recognised by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) as being capable of contributing to the obligatory CPD requirements of Full Members (see www.ihbc.org.uk)
