The SPAB London group was formed in 2015 and it brings together over 1,000 SPAB members living or working in the metropolitan area.
London’s diversity of built heritage gives members the opportunity to share knowledge of historic buildings, conservation projects and craft skills. The SPAB London group offers visits to see conservation works on historic buildings, lectures, concerts and its monthly Walks to Nowhere, guided walking tours discovering London’s many distinctive neighbourhoods and ending at an historic pub. Recent walks traversed Bloomsbury, Smithfield and Borough.
In the spirit of the SPAB Working Party the group organises a yearly Action Weekend at the Croxley Great Barn, Rickmansworth. During the weekend volunteers ranging from heritage professionals to enthusiasts to visit a medieval barn and learn about craft skills and put these to practice.
While coronavirus restrictions are in place, the London Group have been offering monthly virtual walks around different areas of London. Upcoming walks will appear in our What's On section and below when they are open for booking - if you don't see anything there, it is because it isn't open yet. Members can also catch up with past recordings; please email email@example.com for links.
Non-members can see an example walk around Bermondsey. If you'd like to join in with more members' events from the SPAB and our Regional Groups, please join us as a member.
