Information re The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in Scotland

Address: The Glasite Meeting House, 33 Barony Street, Edinburgh
Contact: info@spabscotland.freeserve.co.uk

This amenity society founded by William Morris, Philip Webb and others, in 1877; to oppose what they saw as destructive ‘restoration’ of ancient buildings then occurring in Victorian England; ‘ancient’ being used in the wider sense of ‘very old’ rather than the more usual modern one of ‘pre-medieval’.

The society states on their website: “We believe old buildings have a future. From cottages to castles and from churches to cathedrals we are here to help buildings and the people who care for them. Based on years of experience and research we understand how old buildings work.”
