    In 2016 UAHS visited vernacular buildings in the Mournes, close to Annalong, and saw how smaller buildings can be adapted and extended. On 24 June 2017 come and spend a morning looking at the conservation of this ‘mud’ walled, thatch (under tin) vernacular cottage in Mid Ulster.  The day will commence at 10am with refreshments and a briefing on the project.

    Participants will have an opportunity to become involved at a practical level and see at first hand traditional materials in use and help make mud bricks for use on the project.  Bricks can be marked and collected towards the end of the month.

    Park in the main car park at the gates into the house and not at the carpark at the house.  The cottage is 100 yds off the carpark on a laneway. The event will conclude at 1pm.
