A new twist to historic preservation….

Filed under: Historic Preservation — John Maass @ 7:29 pm

In an article called “Historic sites compete for cash,” the BBC gives details on a Welsh plan to have historic sites vie for money to help preserve themselves. Its part of the BBC’s TV show called Restoration Village. Viewers must choose between slate workshops and a community institute in north Wales and a Carmarthenshire farm, which dates back to the 14th Century.

Prichard Jones Institute

The article is here.

Are TV viewers really the best judges of what is worthy or restoration, or even if the job can be done at all?
