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. Saving heritage from destruction helps tackle the climate emergency and the UK to meet its legally binding net zero targets as reusing historic buildings creates much lower carbon emissions than demolition and rebuild.
We've adapted to Covid 19, and even managed to push for better outcomes in more cases than 2019, but we've received no heritage sector coronavirus support funding. Could you become a member and join the special few who care enough to ensure that our charity will always be here to protect our heritage?
