King’s Lynn: The Town and The Trust

We are surrounded by buildings of all ages. We notice some because of their obvious historical importance, others catch our attention because of the distinctiveness of their design or the materials used – ranging from traditional brick and timber to modern glass and steel.

Whether structures are medieval, Georgian or modern they mirror the design, taste and need of the time.

The role of The Trust

Many of the buildings which stood in King’s Lynn one hundred years ago have disappeared as a consequence of economic pressures, commercial interests, changes in taste and the ever-present desire for ‘improvement’ to meet the perceived needs of the day.

Since its foundation and first project, the Trust has actively engaged in acquiring and restoring buildings of historical or architectural merit to help ensure the town’s built heritage is not lost.
