Give in your will

Make a lasting difference

In Britain, 10,000 listed buildings are officially designed 'at risk' and their future is uncertain. Each year we are unable to rescue many endangered buildings simply because we do not have the funds to restore them.

Ensure our past has a future

Since 1965 we have been saving historic buildings at risk, giving them a new and secure future. Our simple, self-sustaining mission ensure that these buildings will never again fall into decay and will be enjoyed for generations to come. We depend on the generosity of individuals, with gifts in wills playing a vital role in our work.

Help us to sustain traditional craft skills. Many of our buildings require specialist restoration techniques and we provide opportunities for craft training, so these ancient skills survive.

What past gifts have helped us achieve

Dolbelydr, an important 16th-century gentry house in Denbighshire, was a roofless ruin when we came across it. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Dolbelydr is now a wonderful Landmark for 6 and is available to visit for free throughout the year.

“Over 30 years ago I was taken by a friend to Dolbelydr. She had tried unsuccessfully to interest organisations in its restoration. Sadly she died before Landmark’s involvement. What a loss Dolbelydr would have been. My gift may just tip the balance in another restoration.”

Patricia Badland, legacy supporter

“Landmark has over the years made, and continues to make, a unique contribution to the rescue, repair, restoration and re-use of buildings which many others would view as being beyond redemption or economically unviable. Landmark's efforts in this field deserve the support of all with an interest in protecting our built heritage. We are proud to be involved in its work by remembering the Trust in our Wills.”
