ABSTRACT
The article reports that the English Heritage collaborated with the Ironbridge Institute and the Society for the Study of Labour History Archives Committee in a conference examining how protection can be given to buildings, monuments and landscapes relating to the labor movement in Great Britain. Raphael Samuel of Ruskin College, Oxford, explained that the labor movement has shown a strong interest in its own history. Nick Mansfield, Director of the National Museum of Labour History in Manchester, presented an illustrated gazetteer of sites associated with labor history. The criteria for protecting buildings relating to industry and the working class were considered by Martin Cherry of English Heritage. Peter White of English Heritage discussed the means by which some of the essentials of the working place can be conserved.
