Local people are invited to sign up to two evening courses run by the Hull School of Architecture.


Some places are still available on the Historical Development of Hull and Self Build Housing.


The first of a series of 10 lectures on the historical development of Hull was presented by local historian and writer Chris Ketchell yesterday.


Mr Ketchell is using slides and photographs to consider the architectural history of the city and the many changes that have occurred over the century. In future weeks the lectures will examine the industries of Hull, its entrepreneurs and the development of different types of buildings.


For those interested in building their own home the series of lectures at the School of Architecture on George Street is a must. Each session, presented by experts from the building industry, covers a different aspect of the process from finding and buying land to the completion and occupation of the house.


Building your own home can be a cheaper option but it is important to be aware of the legal and financial implications before embarking on such a major project.


Places on both courses cost just 3 per person per session and can be booked by calling the School of Architecture on 01482 462067.
