Thursday 29 April, 13.30-14.30
Join us for our April skillshare, led by David Strachan of the Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust (members of our Mills Section). David will be explaining the Trust's plans for Lower City Mills, a cluster of A-listed watermill buildings dating from the 18th century.
The Trust will bring new life to the mills by sensitively repairing them and giving them a new use as a conservation hub, with the Trust's office at its core.
About the speaker:

Joining PKHT in 2000, he established the Historic Environment Record and planning archaeology service for the area and as Director since 2005 he is responsible for the varied work of the Trust, focusing on regeneration through conservation, training and life-long-learning, and the development of 'citizen science' projects.
