The Blackden Trust: 2018 season

Every year the Friends of The Blackden Trust launch their season of events by hosting a public lecture that relates to the work of the Trust – a fund-raising event to help The Blackden Trust continue its conservation work on the site.  (All donations are always much appreciated by the Trust.)

The Blackden Trust‘s report, March 2018:C6250BF5-8CC5-4C23-B687-9537A15C3D0D

On March 10th at Terra Nova school, Henry Owen-John, Head of International Advice at Historic England and a Trustee of the Blackden Trust, gave a talk entitled Britain’s World Heritage – What’s it all about?

Henry spoke about the origins of UNESCO and how the World Heritage Convention came into being and its ongoing development. The talk was illustrated with examples from a diverse range of World Heritage Sites in the UK and beyond. Henry also spoke of the nomination to add the Jodrell Bank Observatory to the World Heritage list. The talk was fascinating and was enjoyed by all who attended.

Planning began for a new event entitled ‘By Seven Firs and Goldenstone – A Walk Between Worlds.’ to be launched in September 2018.

Tim Campbell-Green + Katherine Darby at Alderley Edge

Alan Garner’s daughter Katharine Darby, in collaboration with archaeologist Dr. Tim Campbell-Green, took a walk over Alderley Edge to discuss their initial ideas.  Alan and Griselda Garner provided background information in guidance for content of the event. To find out more about this and all our events, please go to our website http://www.theblackdentrust.org.uk

Also, during March, our preparations for the new season began. A group of our volunteers worked to erect the tent in the garden for use in many of our forthcoming activities.
Our volunteers help us in a range of activities and can choose those they enjoy and feel most comfortable doing. Everyone has something to offer. If you are interested in joining our happy team, please email volunteer@theblackdentrust.org.uk
