for People with a Passion for Period Property

Period Property UK

Period Property UK was established to facilitate an "active community of interest" for the benefit of people who share a passion for living in, and caring for, buildings that constitute part of our British heritage. Using the web enables people, separated by distance, to come together to share knowledge and experiences.

Founded in 1999, Period Property UK has established itself as the definitive site on the web for information on Period Properties, their character and their maintentance.
