A Building Preservation Trust (BPT) is an organisation whose main aims include the preservation and regeneration of historic buildings.[1] BPTs normally have charitable status.

There are around 300 BPTs in the United Kingdom and their scope ranges from national to the preservation of an individual building or type of building. Trusts that work on a number of simultaneous or successive projects are known as revolving fund trusts. A register of revolving trusts is maintained by the Architectural Heritage Fund.[1]

The UK Association of Preservation Trusts acts as a representative body for BPTs in the U.K.[2]
