SPAB (Society for the Protection of ancient Buildings)


The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) believes old buildings have a future. From cottages to castles and from churches to cathedrals they are here to help buildings and the people who care for them. Through their unique training schemes, coursesadvice, and research they help people put their expertise into practice.



The SPAB’s annual National Maintenance Week campaign reminds anyone who looks after a building – regardless of its age, type or purpose – of the simple, achievable steps they can take to prepare for the worst that winter can bring.


Established in 2013, the SPAB Maintenance Co-operatives Project (MCP), funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, provided free-of-charge, practical support to the dedicated staff and volunteers who take care of some of their most treasured and distinctive built heritage. Working in five regions across England and delivering a further five ‘Co-op Minis’ the Maintenance Co-operatives Project built on the success of Faith in Maintenance and assisted places of worship not only with training but also with practical support on gathering volunteers, carrying out baseline building surveys and turning all that knowledge into maintenance plans and practical working parties.
