Campaigning for threatened historic buildings


Welcome to SAVE Britain's Heritage. SAVE has been campaigning for historic buildings since its formation in 1975 by a group of architectural historians, journalists and planners. SAVE is a strong, independent voice in conservation, free to respond rapidly to emergencies and to speak out loud for the historic environment.



SAVE welcomes the acquisition of Gwrych Castle by preservation trust

15 June 2018

The castle has been in a desperate state for nearly 50 years and SAVE has supported Mark Baker’s campaigning which remarkably began when he was 11. Described as a fairy tale castle Gwrych is one of the grandest landmarks of the Romantic Era in Europe, an overpoweringly theatrical composition of embattled walls and towers climbing up a wooded hillside.
