The Tyne & Wear Building Preservation Trust (TWBPT) was established to preserve the architectural heritage of Tyne and Wear through the repair, conservation and regeneration of our historic buildings and structures. The Trust is a registered charity and a not for profit organisation that has been operating since 1979. TWBPT is one of many such buildings preservation trusts in the UK.
Our main objective is to preserve for the benefit of the public generally and especially for the inhabitants of the county of Tyne and Wear, buildings (including artefacts and land) which are of special historic, architectural, or townscape interest.
The Trust's most recent achievement has been to restore Blackfell Hauler House, which is part of the Bowes Railway scheduled monument with support from the Challenge Fund, The Pilgrim Trust, The Joicey Trust and the Lamesley Ward Fund.
