Training - Moses Well Bridge

LTM are currently hosting 6 students from the Malta College of Arts, Science & Technology (MCAST). The students, who are undertaking a vocational qualification ‘Masonry Heritage Skills’ with MCAST in Malta, are participating in the Leonardo programme, and have been gaining experience of masonry conservation techniques from LTM’s masons during their stay in Scotland. The aim of the LTM placement is to provide an understanding of the difference techniques of masonry conservation, and to provide cultural and social development.

Maltese Students working on Moses Well BridgeThe Maltese visitors have had excellent opportunity from their visit to gain experience in masonry conservation techniques and are to be awarded certificates in recognition for their participation in a National Trust project. The Moses Well Bridge which became unstable and in some parts completely washed away occurred at a time where there was little or no funding available for repair. LTM having worked with NTS for many years now and have donated their services to the repair and safe consolidation of the bridge, allowing our Maltese visitors to be involved in some of the typically intricate projects that LTM get involved in.

Once again LTM welcome back our friends from Heritage Malta and the Malta College of Arts, Science & Technology (MCAST) by hosting 6 students who are participating in the Leonardo program which supports European projects. The scheme encourages the cross fertilisation of skills and provides cultural and social development between the two countries. LTM has partnered this project with The National Trust for Scotland for the emergency consolidation and rebuild of Mosses Well Bridge at Castle Fraser. However it’s not been work only for these students as they have enjoyed excursions throughout Aberdeenshire and a taste of true Scottish culture with a day at the famous Lonach Games in Strathdon.

“The opportunity to provide the project for the students to train under LTM’s supervision has enabled the Mosses Well Bridge project to get off the ground and the NTS wish the students well in the future studies and hope to see more students back in the future.”

LTM have hosted the Leonardo da Vinci Scholarship for the past 4 years. During this period we have trained about 20 Maltese students in the LTM ethos... once they are finished they become master repairs ‘mastri’.”
