Event description

Description

ABTEM initiated and supported the recent publication of new Guidelines for the Care and Operation of Larger & Working Historic Objects in response to many working in the industrial and transport heritage sector concerned about the lack of up-to-date guidance about the care and conservation of their larger and working objects.

The programme will include a presentation by the consultants that worked with ABTEM to complete the new Guidelines - International Railway Heritage Consultancy (IRHC). Four case studies illustrating good practice will cover:

  • Moving the Collection, Aerospace Bristol
  • O&K narrow gauge rail wagon
  • American fighter aircraft Corsair KD34
  • Wheal Martyn Mobile Crane

There will also be an opportunity to consider how we can make use of and promote the Guidelines and to look at some the new Aerospace Bristol museum.

The free seminar will include a sandwich lunch and tea and coffee. Full programme will be provided following registration.

Development of the new Guidelines and this seminar have been made possible by generous financial support from Arts Council England.
