National Maintenance Week (20-27 November 2020) is the SPAB’s annual reminder to give your home, whether it’s a 1930s semi-detached or a medieval manor, a maintenance check before the winter months.
Alongside resources and top tips for keeping buildings in good condition, SPAB’s National Maintenance Week 2020 includes a number of free online events to help owners and users get to know their old buildings better and take practical action to look after them.
An Introduction to Caring for Your Old Building
24 November 2020, 14:30 - 15:30

This illustrated talk explores how old buildings are different to new, how and why they can decay, what maintenance is and why it's important. It includes practical advice on getting started and working safely.
Presented by James Innerdale, an architect and historic buildings consultant. James was the Technical Officer for the SPAB’s recent Maintenance Cooperatives Project (MCP).
The lecture is free to attend, but please register your place in advance.
