  • whether there are alternatives to their use

The conference takes place at Sandburn Hall in Flaxton, York on 26 November, with talks beginning at 10am. It will consist of a series of technical and practical presentations with speakers including Michael Seals, Nico Brons, Gary Ford, David Burch and Martin Smith.
