One of our directors, Martin Sturley-Hayes recently attended a fantastic seminar 'Care and Repair of Old Floors' run by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) in conjunction with their campaign - History at Your Feet. As they point out, we don't often look down when entering a historic building, stepping on to a church path or down a street in an ancient town. This campaign encourages us to #lookdown, share images of historic floors on social media and to think about the history and the care of the ancient fabric at our feet.
