Blackheath Preservation Trust

Group

One of the oldest building preservation trusts in the United Kingdom. It was founded by members of the newly-formed Blackheath Society as an independent and separate property company. Its original objective was to rescue buildings in or near Blackheath, notable for their architectural and historic interest, and which were at risk from demolition or inappropriate alteration.
