Our friends the STBA (Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance) is campaigning for government to change the standard way household energy performance is presented. Ahead of our joint conference, here the STBA set out their proposal.
An introduction to our findings, which we will present at the forthcoming STBA/SPAB conference
We look back on the work of Scottish architect William Weir (1865-1950), one of our most respected caseworkers, and was part of a group of dedicated experts active in the first 50 years of the SPAB.
Now a major heritage destination as a picturesque ruin, Rievaulx was founded in the 12th century as the first Cistercian monastery in the north of England. We look in our records to review our work in 1908-9 which stabilised the building and prevented collapse in several areas of the structure.
