The Project

The Cornish Buildings Group are leading a three-year Historic England/ Cornwall Heritage Trust grant funded project to identify and campaign for Cornish buildings at risk. The Group has maintained a register for buildings at risk since 2014 however has done so with volunteer support only. This funding will support a case officer who will have dedicated time to champion buildings at risk in the county.

The aim of this project is to identify and monitor buildings at risk and seek solutions for neglected, redundant or derelict buildings, regardless of listing.

You can volunteer to support the project and/or report historic buildings or valued heritage assets which are either derelict or not being properly looked after to cbgcasework@gmail.com

Since 1969 the aims of the Cornish Buildings Group have been to stimulate interest, appreciation and knowledge of good building in Cornwall, and to encourage the erection, protection, repair and recording of such buildings. Like any amenities group, we depend on numbers, strength and support of our membership, who provide the force and knowledge that have made us effective for over fifty years. We encourage the protection and repair of historic buildings whether these are listed buildings or simply good examples of traditional building. We aim to encourage good architecture and to raise the general standard of building throughout the county. We hope that our generation may leave behind it buildings which will be looked back on with that same pleasure and enjoyment that we experience when we look at the architecture of past ages.
