The Society for the Preservation of Historic Buildings of the United Kingdom was founded initially as a pressure group to counter the demolition of historic buildings and it resolved later to acquire historically significant properties in order to maintain and protect them itself.[1]

In a 2007 merger, the goodwill of the Society was acquired by a registered not-for-profit organisation, Ruins on the Roam Limited, which adopted the Society's name and assets, with the intention to continue its work.[2]

The Society is noted in an architectural journal of 1969.[3] The Society was dissolved in 2011 after folding due to the dwindling of financial support during the most recent global recession.[4]
