Victorian Society

The Victorian Society is the champion for Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England and Wales.  We were founded in 1958 to campaign for the preservation of important buildings dating from 1837-1914.  As a statutory consultee on applications for listed buildings consent we offer advice to councils and churches on the preservation of important buildings.  We run campaigns to save threatened buildings and publish a journal which contributes to the academic literature on the work of our period.  The Society also runs an extensive events programme.
