THE SPAB MAGAZINE - SPRING 2015

The SPAB has produced a magazine since 1980. It is issued four times a year to the SPAB's 9000 plus members, journalists and others in the building conservation sector. The magazine is highly regarded within the field of building conservation. It is also a popular choice for the advertisement of conservation services and materials, publications, events and jobs.

The magazine regularly features news about old buildings, details of the Society's casework, technical questions and answers, book reviews and the opinions of well known figures on old building issues. Features range from domestic building repair projects undertaken by  homeowners, to international stories about conservation issues, and articles about techniques of conservative repair.
