About us

We advise. We educate. We campaign.

The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings was founded by William Morris in 1877 to counteract the highly destructive 'restoration' of medieval buildings being practised by many Victorian architects.

Today it is the largest, oldest and most technically expert national pressure group fighting to save old buildings from decay, demolition and damage.
