Exploring the City of Bath World Heritage Site

While celebrations take place across the UK’s 31 UNESCO World Heritage Sites to mark the annual World Heritage Day today, the business of protecting these precious places continues, and World Heritage UK notes with sadness the damage by fire to Notre Dame Cathedral in the Banks of the Seine World Heritage Site in Paris, one of the 73 properties inscribed by UNESCO for France.

World Heritage UK continues to consolidate and strengthen, and will be aided by the recruitment of a Resilience Coordinator  funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund – this vacancy is still open for candidates and if you are interested in applying you can see more detail here

Watch this space for registration links to two upcoming events – the Summer Networking Meeting to be held at the Durham Cathedral World Heritage Site on the 6th and 7th August (with an optional coach excursion on the 8th August to Hadrian’s Wall, part of the transnational Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site), and the World Heritage UK Annual Conference and AGM, this year to be hosted by the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site at the Llangollen Pavilion near Wrexham, on the 7th and 8th October.

Enjoy World Heritage Day 2019!
