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 exquisite Temple was built in the 1760s as part of a grand estate in Roehampton. It includes a 1760s painted ceiling with a winged female figures and plaster details, all of which have been severely vandalised over the last decades.
