The PLACE spring conference 2011 was held on Saturday 2nd April at York St John University, York, on the theme of:
YORKSHIRE’S HISTORIC LANDSCAPES AND BUILDINGS AT RISK
It was attended by 95 people, who heard a series of excellent talks on topics ranging from World War II remains on the MOD estate to the chequered history of a listed library in Leeds. Unfortunately, one speaker was unable to attend owing to ill health but George Sheeran produced a first-rate substitute lecture on the St Ives estate near Harden. There were 4 bookstalls and several displays. We intend to publish the proceedings of this very successful conference later in the year.
