Campaign: To get more young people to take an interest in historic buildings

When I walk through the rooms of a historic building – like Milton Manor House near my home town, I get a sense of awe.

 

You can feel all the history through the story of the people who lived and worked here in the past. And of course it is so beautiful.

 

I want other young people to be as enthusiastic about places like this as I am.

 

It makes you feel good to be in somewhere which is so beautiful, that has been loved for centuries.

 

And just as important -  the next generation has to take over at some point. We need to support and preserve buildings like this for future generations.
