The Wisbech Society

and Preservation Trust Limited

Achievements

Wisbech Society and Preservation trust work hard to maintain and protect historical buildings and monuments in and around Wisbech, as our name suggests. 

 

We aim to celebrate the history of the town, and to enhance the knowledge and enjoyment of that history for locals and visitors alike.

 

This page of our website showcases some of the projects that we have been responsible for or played a part in. There are some features here which you may not even know existed! 

 

Others are well known, but you may not have been aware of our involvement.

 

We hope that our efforts have helped to preserve and celebrate the architecture and heritage of the town, and that with your support we can continue our work with many more similar projects in the future to help make Wisbech an exciting place to live in and to visit.
