What our members say

Inspector of Historic Buildings
Member since
Through my involvement with the Society I've learnt so much about building materials and sensitive repairs to historic buildings of all ages - invaluable when I was a student, as a conservation officer and now as an inspector of historic buildings.
Homeowner & Journalist
Member since
We live in an early Victorian house which had been plagued with damp problems. As SPAB members we were aware of the technical helpline and contacted the Society. Just one phone call has recouped the cost of our membership many times over.
Historic Building Consultant
Member since
I actively encourage others to join the SPAB because it offers expert understanding, education and hands-on courses, all at excellent value to members. There is no other organisation that can provide the same support to those people who care for our built heritage.
