This exciting two day heritage CPD course focuses on the importance of setting when managing heritage assets. The course covers a broad range of issues including; how we define setting and its key concepts, how to assess significance and its contribution to the heritage industry.

With a heavy focus on field trips and practical case studies this course offers the chance for those who are beginning their career in heritage to understand one of the key aspects of heritage protection and a chance for more experienced practitioners to discuss the realities and challenges of assessing setting with experts from Historic England.


A full provisional timetable can be found here, and last years course included a trip to Lyveden New Bield, and other sites in the Leicestershire/Northamptonshire area. It is anticipated that this years' trips will be to similar locations.
