Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust
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 rescues 'buildings at risk' by acting as a catalyst (Allestree Hall), enabler (Spital Chapels), partner (Aqueduct Cottage), advisor (Alstonefield Hall) or not-for-profit developer (Wingfield Station) in order to get them restored and put to a viable and active use.
As part of ongoing work to support the long-term conservation of the historic built environment in Derbyshire, the Trust have developed a dedicated Academy. The Trust is offering a free consultation service for Friends of the DHBT that have queries or specific issues about their historic buildings. Find out more here.
