John Ruskin was born on this day in 1819. Dr Peter Burman, architectural historian, reflects on the importance of this founding member of the SPAB.
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.
The first John Betjeman Award in Ireland recognises sensitive external stonework conservation.

A huge thank you to our members, donors, grant givers and followers who have not wavered in their support of the SPAB through the lockdown months. We would also like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the National Lottery players who made the National Lottery heritage Fund Emergency Grants possible.
Don’t forget that we will be closing the office on 23rd December for the Christmas break, re-opening 4th January. From everyone at the SPAB we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
