Scottish Canals Heritage Strategy

Thursday, 29 November 2012

Scottish Canals have recently launched their draft heritage strategy

They have a great collection of business archives that are a key part of the heritage strategy and one of the aims is to: "improve understanding, condition of and access to Scottish Canals' artefacts and archive." But interestingly their strategy covers a huge range of types of heritage:

This strategy will cover all types of cultural heritage associated with Scottish Canals. As well as engineering structures, buildings and natural heritage, our estate includes archaeological sites, historical documents and artefacts. We also wish to safeguard and promote cultural heritage that is not physical, including traditions, craft skills, language, literature, knowledge and associations with past events and people.
The consultation will close on 14 January 2013, to submit your feedback click here.
