It has been reported in HVP that the specialists are needed for appropriate repairs to historic buildings. The news comes as colleges no longer teach lead plumbing, leading to the formation of the Leadwork Conservation Network Group. Comprising the CIPHE, Worshipful Company of Plumbers (WCP) and the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB), the group was officially launched on May 15th. Liaising with conservation groups, industry organisations and government departments, the Leadwork Conservation Network Group is aiming to set a professional Conservation Standard.

Well known for their Hampstead Plumbers, We Fix Now offer their services through London and its surrounding counties. Dealing with a wide variety of plumbing issues, the team have a strong interest in the way the trade is taught to the younger generation. A representative shares their thoughts on the matter.

“We understand that it is essential for the plumbing industry to move in line with the times and naturally this includes the way it is taught. However, it does seem a little concerning that lead plumbing has been dropped from the curriculum as clearly there is still a need for specialists in this area. It will be interesting to see what action is taken as a result of the new organisation’s efforts.”
