West Dean College Heritage Roofing course at SCRT

On Thursday 27th April, South Coast Roof Training Ltd hosted the practical element of the Heritage Roofing course run by West Dean College (in West Sussex) in conjunction with Heritage England.

Students from Ireland, Canada and Great Britain attended the hands-on session.  They were split into four groups and started by sorting, grading and stacking random sized slates; they were then instructed in preparing a gauge stick before battening out the rigs prior to laying the slates to give diminishing courses.

All the students gave positive feedback on the day’s activities, which were organised and overseen by Centre Tutor Yusof Abdullah with the assistance of Centre Tutor Peter Cullingham.
