IHBC’s Context ‘CPD Boost’ and more – Heritage Engineering in context (and don’t miss Ian Hume, Carlisle, 4 Oct, ‘Structural repair of historic buildings’)

IHBC’s Context journal can help boost your knowledge of the issues to be considered, as Michael Beare and James Miller offer a conservation engineer’s view on lime mortars in Issue 154 of Context: ‘Working with Lime and Stone’.
