Talk and walk to celebrate 50 years of conservation

A short talk on the future aims of Caistor Civic Society, plus an amble through Caistor’s Conservation Area, will mark the 50th anniversary of setting up conservation areas in England.

According to Historic England’s website, conservation areas were first designated in England in 1967 and there are now more than 8,000 of them. They protect areas of special architectural and historic interest.

With 56 listed buildings in Caistor – specified on West Lindsey District Council’s website – this weekend’s celebration is an important date in the local Civic Society’s calendar.

The group, and any other visitors, are due to meet up in Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre at 28 Plough Hill on Saturday (June 17, 2017) at 2pm.

Elizabeth Mayle, Acting Conservation Officer at West Lindsey, will deliver a short presentation about conservation, followed by a short stroll to observe some interesting facets about old and new buildings in the town.
