Two workshops aimed at keeping traditional building skills alive will be held later this month.

The Breaking New Ground Landscape Partnership scheme will be working with Orchard Barn Environmental Education CIC to deliver the workshops.

They are aimed at owners and managers of old buildings or those interested in learning the skills.

Held at West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village, the workshops will provide a background into the heritage building skills in the Brecks before people will be taught through demonstrations and hands-on activities.
