Architecture Awards 2020

Applications for our Architecture Awards are now open. 

Established in 1974, the Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust has been responsible for the rescue of many historic buildings throughout Derbyshire. Using their skills and knowledge members of the Trust identify neglected and abandoned historic buildings and then work to bring them back into sustainable new use.


The Trust is a non-profit organisation and a registered charity which is passionate about the heritage of Derbyshire and will work with its own in-house and external professionals to provide help and advice to other groups and individuals who share a passion for historic buildings.
