Shopfronts have a huge impact on the quality of our civic spaces and are a key component of a vibrant town centre. Traditional shopfronts reflect the unique nature of a towns social and cultural history and are essential in forming the strong sense of place we associate with historic town centres.
Dr Lindsay Lennie, historic shopfront expert, will be looking at the key elements forming a traditional shopfront, the materials and construction techniques as they relate to different periods in retail architecture. Lindsay is a chartered surveyor with a diploma in building conservation and a PhD in historic shopfronts.
