Bristol Buildings Preservation Trust finds ways of taking on vulnerable historic buildings and restoring them to active use, working with owners, voluntary organisations and local communities.

The Trust acts as a focus to encourage all those assisting in conserving the best of Bristol’s past in the form of buildings. We encourage high standards of conservation and repair in our own projects and in those we are actively promoting.

We also encourage the involvement of local communities in our activities, including conservation work. We seek to engage and train young people to enjoy and gain experience in building repair and traditional local craft skills.
