Grimsby/Lincolnshire: Kampf um Erhalt der historischen Eisfabrik

Englands einst bedeutendster Fischereihafen liegt an der Mündung des Humber in die Nordsee. Zur Konservierung des Fischs wurde die wohl größte Eisfabrik des Landes errichtet, die bis 1990 in Betrieb war. Derzeit läuft eine Kampagne zum Erhalt eines zentralen Denkmals der englischen Fischereigeschichte. Die Initiatoren laden nun zu einem „Webinar“ mit Expertengespräch ein.

UPDATED EVENT: This will now take place on 16th July at 5pm, due to Crowdcast experiencing technical difficulties. 

Join SAVE Britain’s Heritage and World Monuments Fund Britain on 15th July at 5pm for a special live event, delving into the past, present and future of Grimsby’s historic docks.  Henrietta Billings, Director of SAVE and John Darlington, Executive Director of WMFB will reflect on the hard fought battle to save the docks from demolition, following its inclusion on the 2014 World Monuments Watch, and the subsequent creation of the new ‘Kasbah’ conservation area. They will be joined by Vicky Hartung, Chair of the Great Grimsby Ice Factory Trust – who will update us on key restoration and regeneration initiatives in the docks.

This is a live event that is free and open to all and we ask that you consider making a contribution of £10 when you register to ‚Save my spot!‘ Contributions made during the event will be split to support SAVE Britain’s Heritage and their Fighting Fund (charity no. 269129) and World Monuments Fund Britain’s project work and associated activities (charity no. 1126578).
