The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB)

The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings is involved in all aspects of the survival of buildings which are old and interesting. Their principal concern is the nature of their “restoration” or “repair”, because misguided work can be extremely destructive. The skill lies in mending with the minimum loss of fabric, romance and authenticity. Old buildings cannot be preserved by making them new.  More here: http://www.spab.org.uk
