The rise and demise of Scotland’s historic slate industry
Friday 17 April 2020
So many of our traditional buildings in Scotland are roofed in slate. Discover what made slate so popular, then what caused its decline, in this blog.
The Engine Shed is accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and National Open College Network (NOCN).
The Engine Shed was supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to share knowledge of traditional building materials, develop skills and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
