Traditional lime mortar has been used for hundreds of years, and is an important part of Scotland’s built heritage. Find out why it’s still so important today with our Technical Officer Declan.
The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
