Sheffield Coroner’s Court fire supports ‘Fire’ and ‘HAR’ CPD priorities in IHBC’s Nottingham 2019 School

flyerThe Victorian Society and other reports on how Sheffield’s old Coroner’s Court building has become another victim of arson highlight how the IHBC’s upcoming Nottingham School, in July and on ‘Heritage, Risk and Resilience’, is of special relevance to CPD needs of IHBC members with responsibilities in managing threats, responding to calamities and responding to Heritage at Risk (HAR).

The Victorian Society writes:

‘The old Coroner’s Court building in Sheffield has become another victim of arson, just months before its demolition notice was unexpectedly withdrawn following several objections from heritage campaigners (including ourselves). The fire took hold last month and the extent of the damage has still not been revealed, though views from the road show sections of the roof and the first floor windows intact….

..The Coroner’s Court was built in 1913 by architect F.E.P Edwards and is a non-designated heritage asset.’

The IHBC Annual School 2019, in Nottingham on 4-6 July, will cover many of the issues this case highlights.
