Tyne & Wear Building Preservation Trust (TWBPT) was established in 1979 to preserve the architectural heritage of Tyne and Wear through the repair, conservation and regeneration of our historic buildings and structures.
Today we work in close collaboration with communities, funders, volunteers and end users across all five Local Authority areas in the Tyne and Wear region to rescue, restore and safeguard buildings and structures under threat. Our work has evolved considerably in recent years and we work to achieve strong social and environmental aims through our core ethos of Heritage Better Managed.
In March 2021, we moved from Alderman Fenwick's House, one of our restoration projects, to John Marley Lodge (formerly known as the Old Caretaker's House) at the John Marley Centre, Muscott Grove in Scotswood.
