'Hard hat' tours at Bennet House
Some forthcoming events at Bennet House in Culross.
Bennet House is a National Trust for Scotland Little Houses Improvement Scheme project, to restore a derelict building in the heart of the historic burgh into two comfortable and modern dwellings (details: http://www.nts.org.uk/Site/LHIS/Bennet-House/).
Building work has now started at Bennet House and we will be running fortnightly ‘hard hat tours’ on a Friday afternoon to allow people to visit, see progress and find out about the Little Houses Improvement Schemes work as the NTS’ in-house buildings preservation trust.
‘Hard hat tours’ are free and will be taking place on the following dates:
Friday 14th October 2016, from 1600 - 1700
Friday 28th October 2016, from 1600 - 1700
Friday 11th November 2016, from 1600 - 1700
Friday 25th November 2016, from 1600 - 1700
Full details are available on the NTS website: http://www.nts.org.uk/Events/Royal-Burgh-of-Culross/Hard-Hat-Tour/
In addition, there is a drawing and walking event taking place on Friday 14th October from 1.00pm- 4.00pm. Join us to discover the long history of building restoration in the burgh of Culross on a sketching tour with Mark Kirkham ‘The Edinburgh Sketcher’ (www.edinburghsketcher.com), and Diane Watters, Buildings Investigator with Historic Environment Scotland.
This event will investigate the burgh’s architectural history through observation and drawing. Learn to improve your sketching skills by discovering some of the hidden architectural gems preserved by the National Trust for Scotland over the last 80 years. The workshop includes a hard-hat tour of Bennet House, the latest Little House under restoration in the burgh. Cost £6.50 for adults, £5.50 concessions, children free.
