History at Your Feet

In summer 2016, the SPAB launched a campaign to encourage people to look down and appreciate the history at their feet in the form of beautiful old floors. Often in plans submitted for our consideration there is not much consideration given to historic floors. We highlighted some of the country's most important floors in a blog post and created a downloadable campaign document on how to look after historic floors: Caring for Old Floors pamphlet (12.5MB PDF). The SPAB also launched a guidance note, developed jointly with ChurchCare, which addresses the issues surrounding the appropriate care of historic floors. Download the historic floors guidance note (PDF, 648kb). Watch the SPAB's History at Your Feet video on Vimeo.
