In honour of April Fools’ Day earlier this month, we’ve looked through the SPAB archive to see which architectural follies the Society has been involved with.
We explore an unusual example of when John Ruskin became actively involved in a fundraising campaign to save a medieval church.
As our new Scholars prepare for their year of conservation discoveries, we look to a valued past Scholar. In June 2018 local Scholar Peter Carey (1977) showed us behind the scenes of the redevelopment of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, a building that he had been passionate about for decades.
We explored our archive for records of the SPAB's activity on Valentine's day. In 1895 founding committee members were discussing repairs to Eckington bridge in Worcestershire.
