Gavin Stamp 15 March 1948 - 30 December 2017

The Georgian Group was saddened to learn of the death of the architectural historian Professor Gavin Stamp.

Professor Stamp was an active supporter of the Group's work, both personally and professionally. Always ready to alert the Group to threats to our Georgian heritage, and equally ready to publicise threats on our behalf, he was also a keen historian of the Group itself, writing several pieces on the Group's history and ethos and assisting with the historical section of this website.

He was greatly respected, and his learned opinions will be much missed in the world of conservation and architectural history.

Improvements to Membership Service

As announced in our winter magazine, the Georgian Group is in the process of moving our membership function and administration back in-house. This is an exciting time and we are very much looking forward to providing our members with a more personal service.  Key dates for the move occur in the next few weeks. Whilst we are hoping for a seamless transition period that does not affect our members, we may need your patience in January and February as the transition takes place. We wish our members a very happy new year, and look forward to hearing more from you all in 2018.

Our Aims and Purpose

The Georgian Group is the national charity dedicated to preserving Georgian buildings and gardens. We were founded in 1937.  

We aim to protect historic buildings through providing advice to owners and architects, campaigning, and through our role as statutory consultees in the planning system. Our annual awards promote excellence in design and conservation. In its casework, the Georgian Group advises councils, church bodies, and others on threats to the historic fabric and setting of structures built between 1700 and 1840.

The Group organises lectures and other events aimed at improving the understanding of aspects of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century built heritage.  We also produce technical advice leaflets, and promote the publication of academic research through our journal.
