The Letchworth Garden City Society was founded in 1978. It is for everyone interested in the town – its buildings, architecture, amenities and social history – as well as the principles on which it was founded.
In addition to promoting interest in the Garden City and the Arts & Crafts Movement from which it was conceived, the Society is active in local conservation to ensure that Letchworth’s unique character and appearance is protected and preserved, and that any new developments are in keeping with this environment.
The Society is represented on many local groups including the Town Forum, the Architectural Heritage Advisory Group and the Architectural Heritage Award Scheme. We have nominated a Governor for the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation.
