Abstract

Continuing anthropogenic induced climate change poses risks to Cultural Heritage (CH) across the world. In the UK, cultural, natural and built heritage sites are often run by or with the help of groups of volunteers, whether that being at a national level or at a local level. Mellor Archaeological Trust is one such local charity which aims to preserve, maintain and protect the local CH assets. Climate change and its impacts are, therefore, a big concern for the trust as it looks to plan for the future. After a successful pilot of the STORM service, Mellor was able to demonstrate how the use of inexpensive and novel technologies can help small and large volunteer-led organisations in protecting heritage whilst ensuring that correct procedures are followed. Keywords: culture, mitigation, precipitation, volunteers
