Longford Academy logo

This seven-day course focuses on traditional building materials including stone, brick, mortar, plaster, wood, metals and finishes. It covers their properties, how they weather and decay, and how they are best conserved. Topics include salt attack and rising damp, repointing of mortar joints, timber decay and termites, and galvanic corrosion of metals. Theory sessions are supported by inspections on the Brickendon and Woolmers Estates.
