Why not join our Working Party? We always need volunteers to help with events and research. Our meetings in Clerkenwell are very sociable, and take place monthly. Drop us a line, below.
Philip Boyle, our coordinator, is currently involved in two camapaigns: the first is striving to save West London College in Hammersmith from threatened demolition. The second relates to Bromley Hall School in Bow. This building is grade 2 listed but currently empty and without plans for its reuse and also suffering from serious neglect.
Watch the talk which he recently gave as part of the Architecture Foundation's "100 Day Studio" series, on these two remarkable buildings. Please give your support to our campaigns to save them.
Following a long camapign to save and protect 269 Leigham Court Road in Lambeth, the Local Authority, who own and manage this outstanding example of sheltered housing, have agreed with DOCOMOMO to the introduction of new systems for carrying out maintenance and repair in ways which will respect the newly Listed status of this building.
