Autumn Round of Industrial Heritage Network Meetings, October to December 2022, Starting

The autumn round of online Industrial Heritage Network meetings starts this month (October) with the West Midlands Group. Further meetings in November and December will include the South West, East of England and Yorkshire IHNs. There will be four more IHN meetings in January and February 2023, completing the current cycle.

IHN members will have an opportunity to discuss the theme for this current round of IHN meetings – how the post-COVID lockdown recovery is impacting industrial heritage sites, large and small. Is it business ‘as usual’ or has the COVID pandemic led to permanent changes in the way sites and organisations deal with the public and staff? How is your site coping with any maintenance backlog, recruiting volunteers, and reaching out to schools? We are also gathering data on the strength of visitor numbers in 2022.

Individual members will be emailed details of the timings. If you would like your organisation to be involved with one of the 10 Industrial Heritage networks, then email the IHSO at: mike.nevell@ironbridge.org.uk
