Scottish Roofing: Materials and Practices

22nd Feb, 2024
Stirling, Scotland

Natural slate, lead and iron have been used to cover (and sometimes decorate) traditional Scottish buildings for generations. Our three morning talks will introduce you to the methods and materials traditionally used in Scotland for roofing. We will also discuss the prospects for reopening Scotland's first working slate quarry since the 1950s. A networking lunch will provide you with the opportunity to continue discussions and explore the Engine Shed. In the afternoon, the speakers will lead a walking tour around Stirling's Old Town to observe a wide range of roof repair and conservation issues.
