Rescuing Ruins – the work of The Landmark Trust

Tue. 17 October 2023 at 7:00 pm

Free – £2.50

A Zoom talk presented by Alastair Dick-Cleland – Project Development Manager for the Landmark Trust.

Alastair Dick-Cleland is a building surveyor with over 25 years’ experience of working for the Landmark Trust. He changed careers after 10 years with the John Lewis Partnership, to study architecture at the Prince of Wales’s Institute of Architecture, followed by the RICS accredited Post-graduate Diploma in Building Conservation at the College of Estate Management (now part of Reading University). He has managed many of Landmark’s restoration projects ranging from a tiny schoolhouse in Dumfries & Galloway, to Astley Castle near Nuneaton. His current role focuses on finding and evaluating potential buildings as future Landmark projects. He is also Secretary of the CFA Voysey Society.

Alastair will give us an overview of the work of the Landmark Trust, one of the UK’s largest building preservation trusts founded back in 1965. He will tell us about restoration projects in the southwest, and in particular, he will discuss the restoration of Winsford Cottage Hospital, a delightful building designed by the celebrated Arts & Crafts architect CFA Voysey.

Please book with the organiser (details below) by a day before the event. You will be sent a link to access the Zoom session.

This talk is part of The Devonshire Association Monthly Lecture Series – a programme of talks on a wide range of topics presented by informed and respected speakers throughout the year using Zoom technology.
