Dearbhail Keating, church inspecting architect and SPAB technical panel member

Great pleasure in announcing that our brilliant architect Dearbhail Keating has been accepted on to the approved list of inspecting architects for Carlisle Diocese. Dearbhail is now permitted to carry out quinquennial inspections of churches of all listing grades within the diocese of Carlisle.  Dearbhail’s experience of historic buildings through her work with the SPAB and during her SPAB Lethaby Scholarship will mean that the churches of the region will soon be benefit from her expert knowledge and total commitment to our built heritage.

Dearbhail has also recently been asked to join the SPAB technical panel and is now giving up some of her time to travel to London to offer her knowledge to the current debates regarding technical understanding and guidance on historic buildings.

Well done Dearbhail, we’re all really proud of you.
