Marks & Spencer’s plan to demolish and rebuild their flagship store in London’s West End ignited public indignation and quickly became one of SAVE’s biggest cases.
It is the first time heritage and sustainability have taken joint centre stage at a public inquiry and the outcome could have far-reaching consequences for development in the UK.
This report tells the story so far.

£12.00 (£10.00 Friends Price)

This 2016 book shows how Britain has led the way in breathing new life into great historic buildings of many kinds - naval dockyards, military enclaves, textile mills, market halls, railways arches, air terminals, Victorian grand hotels, power stations, town halls and hospitals.
These heroic transformations have often been the work of enterprising commercial and often voluntary organisations. Once repaired and transformed, sometimes after years of decay, they provide places to work, live and visit. More than this they are powerful regeneration projects in places which need investment. These successes can be an inspiration to everyone who cherishes a local landmark.
Many of them are the direct or indirect result of campaigns and projects launched and commissioned by SAVE.
These are buildings which half a century ago would rarely have survived. Their revival is a creative process showing that all over Britain and beyond, historic buildings can be beacons of new life in both booming and declining economies.
Marcus Binney tells the stories of these rescues, often in the face of official indifference and even hostility, stories which are easily forgotten when a great building is restored to glory and life. When these buildings have been callously left to rot, some may need injections of grant aid, but once repaired they no longer need to be pensioners on the state but can earn their keep.
This book is a blueprint for action showing that it can take just one determined person to save an architectural marvel.
The Destruction of the Country House: 40 Years On
£12.00 (£9.60 Friends Price)
Christmas Sale - We are offering a 20% discount on this publication until 17th December 2023. The usual price is £15.00 / £12.00
SAVE's publication in 2014 marks 40 years since the landmark exhibition The Destruction of the Country House. Held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1974, the exhibition had a huge impact and led to the founding of SAVE Britain's Heritage in 1975.
Written by Marcus Binney with contributions from John Harris, two of the curators of the 1974 exhibition, and prepared by Mike Fox, the book recalls some of the losses, the battles, and the many great saves which have taken place over the past forty years, many of which SAVE has been directly involved in.
Read of the battle to save The Grange, the campaign to prevent the break-up of Mentmore Towers, and the problems currently facing houses in local authority care, amongst many others. A must for anyone interested in Britain's heritage and country houses.
