HOLT About.JPG

ABOUT

We are London’s independent heritage charity, set up in 1980 by the Greater London Council to rescue historic buildings and monuments. We work in every London borough, supporting local communities who most need our help.

We identify projects, commission condition surveys, give grants and guide the restoration of each site from beginning to end. We focus on heritage at risk. We encourage local authorities to get behind us and work with specialist conservators to bring every building back to life. All our projects involve young people through our Proud Places programme.

 

London’s lost histories inspire and delight. We research the amazing stories behind every project and use them to brighten our surroundings and our lives.

As a charity we are 100% independently funded

if you can help support us, please do!

This handsome Art Deco arch is all that remains after Queen Mary’s Hospital for the East End closed in 1983. The entire complex was pulled down for a housing development following the opening of Newham General Hospital.

Sarah Siddons statue

Paddington

Sarah Siddons was the most famous tragedienne of the 18th century, playing Hamlet as well as Lady Macbeth and breaking new ground for women on stage.

Cranford lock-up

Before police stations, lock ups were used for temporary detention of thieves and drunks. This is the last of its kind to survive in London.
