Stonemason Sean Henderson, carpenter and joiner Sam Matthams, stonemason Luke O’Hanlon, and bricklayer Matthew Wilson, are the latest recruits to the SPAB's Fellowship - a unique educational scheme designed to nurture and develop the hands-on skills needed to care for old buildings.
The SPAB Scholarship is a prestigious training scheme for young building professionals to gain practical building repair skills from the some of the UK’s most experienced craftspeople.

Three young architecture graduates have won the SPAB's prestigious ‘new design in historic contexts’ award, the Philip Webb Award, for their separate schemes proving that with imagination and sensitivity you don’t need to demolish historic buildings.
