Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings
The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings is involved in all aspects of the survival of buildings which are old and interesting. SPAB's principal concern is the nature of their "restoration" or "repair", because misguided work can be extremely destructive. To us the skill lies in mending them with the minimum loss of fabric and so of romance and authenticity. Old buildings cannot be preserved by making them new.
