Support a very special cause

Landmark’s wealth of knowledge and expertise, built up in over 40 years, allows us to save threatened historic buildings and give them a new life through sensitive, skilled restoration. A belief in the importance of keeping rare craft skills alive underpins all our work, as does the use of traditional materials.

  • Landmark has already secured the future of over 190 buildings, among them 12 castles, 13 towers, 10 gatehouses, and 22 follies.
  • Every week Landmark is asked to save 2-3 historic properties - around 150 each year.
  • With your help we can save more buildings that need us.

Every building you help us to rescue leaves a vital lasting legacy for future generations.

Your gift can transform

The transformation of a vulnerable building at risk into a thriving Landmark is an incredible journey, which is only possible thanks to the generosity of our community of supporters.

  • Over 1,000 individuals donated to the Astley Castle appeal, supported by grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage, and trusts and foundations.
  • Hundreds of people were involved in the project itself – volunteers, school children, local people and craftsmen.
  • Astley Castle opened in 2012. Thousands more will now be able to experience the powerful combination of ancient ruins, now protected, and intelligent modern architecture which gives Astley its new life. Find out more about Astley Castle

  • Care for vulnerable structures
