Balkerne Tower Trust

Balkerne Tower Trust Ltd was initially set up to secure the purchase of Jumbo when the building was to be sold by auction in February 2006.  Although unsuccessful, the trust continues to campaign for the restoration of this landmark with an after-use that provides for public access.

Heritage Trust Network

Heritage Trust Network is a membership organisation run by people who have delivered amazing heritage projects against all the odds. Our mission is to help others do the same.

Heritage Trust Network began life as the UK Association of Building Preservation Trusts in 1989 and continued to support members as UKAPT until 2016 when Heritage Lottery Funding allowed the organisation to transition.

Whilst retaining the same grassroots nature of UKAPT, Heritage Trust Network is able to support a wider range of built heritage projects, types of organisation and corporate supporters.
