The Blackheath Society Publications Books Blackheath Preservation Society 1938 - 2016

Blackheath Preservation Trust 1938 - 2016
by John Bartram

The BPT was founded in1938, one year after the Society, to buy local buildings under threat of demolition to preserve, enhance and then sell them on into safe ownership. Much of today’s built environment was preserved thanks to its efforts. The BPT was taken over by the Society in 2010 and wound up in 2016, when better planning regulations and a greater interest in preserving older buildings meant its work was no longer needed. The 40-page book, written and edited by John Bartram, tells the full story of the BPT with details of the buildings preserved.
