Conservation Area

The Mechanics’ Institution is Swindon’s most important piece of heritage but should not be seen in isolation.

The Conservation Area of the Railway Works and Railway Village are nationally significant and contain many important examples of heritage however the area lacks a clear plan for its future and worryingly has many buildings which the Trust considers to be neglected, under utilised or facing the threat of inappropriate development.

The Trust seeks to work with all relevant partners and owners of buildings in the area and we welcome discussion.
