Marcus Patton Lecture

About the lecture

As late as 1960 there was no legislation in Northern Ireland to protect historic buildings, and little recognition that there were any historic buildings to protect in any case. Today we have over 8000 listed buildings and conservation is involved in as much as a third of planning applications.

Marcus Patton looks at how architectural conservation in Ulster has emerged from the development pressures of the sixties and political unrest of the seventies and eighties to being a part of mainstream planning as “sustainable development” becomes the norm. 

Further details about this lecture series can be found on the Historic Environment Record of Northern Ireland (HERoNI) promotional leaflet 2019 / 2020.
