The SPAB Heritage Awards welcome entrants from across the UK and Ireland
In anticipation of a talk in March on their collaboration, we looked to our archives to explore John Piper’s involvement in the establishment of our Betjeman Award over 30 years ago, to honour his friend’s love of ancient churches.
Our John Betjeman Award for excellence in conservation at places of worship celebrates its 30th year. The 2020 winner is Tenterden Methodist Church, Kent for the exemplary repair of a war memorial pipe organ.
Despite the disruption caused by Covid-19 to its format this year, the SPAB’s Philip Webb Award drew a record-breaking number of entries, with 31 schemes received from individuals or teams who, between them, represent 19 schools of architecture across the UK.
