Pub Heritage Group

The main objectives of CAMRA's Pub Heritage Group are:

  • to raise awareness and appreciation of pub interiors of historic and architectural importance

  • to support and, if necessary, lead on campaigns to ward off threats of closure or unwanted alterations to pubs with historic interiors

  • to seek additional protection for pubs with historic interiors through the planning system

  • to scour the country to identify other possible candidates.

We have a stand at the Great British Beer Festival which always generates a lot of interest. The display stand is available for use at other beer festivals.

To achieve these objectives we:

  • compile and maintain the national inventory of historic pub interiors and Regional Inventories of Historic Pub Interiors

  • maintain this website

  • use CAMRA publications such as the Good Beer Guide and What's Brewing to get our messages across

  • identify historic pub interiors which are at risk and agree actions to try and protect them

  • aim to get as many of historic pub interiors as possible Listed

  • visit and report on candidates for inclusion on Inventories.
