buildings of all ages fall within our remit. 'Ancient Monument'

- including houses, whether vernacular or polite, barns, almshouses,
dovecotes, mills, churches and chapels.

The Twentieth Century Society exists to safeguard the heritage
of architecture and design in Britain from 1914 onwards.
One of the Society's prime objectives is education, with
education comes appreciation. With conservation, another
prime objective, comes the continued opportunity for extending
our knowledge about those buildings or artifacts, whether
important or humble, rare or commonplace as the red telephone
kiosk, that characterize the Twentieth Century in Britain.

is a charitable organisation committed to the preservation
of dry stone walls throughout Great Britain and to the training

The Georgian Group is the charity dedicated to preserving Georgian
buildings and gardens. Each year we are consulted on over 6,000

often through our influence that a better solution is found.
