Doncaster Civic Trust

An independent group of local people interested in Doncaster’s heritage

A Welcome from our Chairman

chairman2016I’m so pleased you have visited our website. I hope you enjoy finding out more about Doncaster Civic Trust and our activities.

We have been around for a long time – in 2016 we celebrate our 70th anniversary. Over the years we have often been influential in promoting good architecture and urban design and helping protect valuable historic buildings and townscape.

You can get a flavour of our history by visiting our archive section on this website.

But we continue to be very active. At the moment, we are putting a lot of energy and resources into developing an education programme to help our young people in Doncaster better understand and value our rich architectural heritage.

And we are expanding our popular guided walks programme.

At £5 per annum, membership is very good value. If you are interested in architecture and the historic built environment we think you will enjoy our programme of talks. If you want, you could become involved in any of our activity groups – for example, joining our planning committee, manning our stand at local history fairs or helping us expand our tree planting scheme.

Architecture Competition

During the last two weeks in November, 75 masters architecture and urban design students from the University of Sheffield will be visiting 8 Doncaster primary schools to help around 250 pupils think about their designs for the 2016 Doncaster Civic Trust Architecture Competition. Our members are looking forward very much to seeing the results and awarding prizes.
