Records of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings

  • GB 2236 SPAB
  • Fonds

Since its foundation in 1877 the SPAB has amassed a substantial archive of documents and images relating to the Society and its work. The majority of material in this unique collection was generated through casework and campaigning, but the archive also includes records of awards, projects, legislation, research, grants, education, committees, publications and advice. These documents illustrate the evolution of conservation policy and practice in this country from the late nineteenth century – which was strongly influenced by the SPAB – and the role of key figures such as William Morris and others closely associated with the Society. The collection is especially relevant to those with a local or professional interest in historic buildings or places and how these have changed during the Society’s lifetime.

Super Archive files

The Super Archive comprises casework files which were removed from the main run of casework files because they are early examples of SPAB's work, important buildings or pivotal cases. Files can include correspondence, reports, photographs, postcards, press cuttings and other papers which document to SPAB's involvement with each building.
