We are the only charity dedicated to championing England and Wales' Victorian and Edwardian buildings. Join our fight to protect our precious heritage from demolition or careless alteration. Reusing historic buildings generates much lower carbon emissions than demolition and rebuild. Saving heritage from destruction helps tackle the climate emergency and the UK meet its legally binding net zero targets.
Covid 19 means we have no income from physical events, putting a hole in our finances. We need new members now, more than ever, to continue our vital work. Click here to join us with a special £10 off membership when you pay by direct debit.
