Custodial history:
Ancoats Buildings Preservation Trust (now Heritage Works) was established in 1995 as a registered charity with the aim of regenerating historic buildings in Ancoats whose cost of repair is uneconomic for the private sector. Working with a range of partners, ABPT is able to acquire, refurbish and resell (or lease), often operating as a 'developer of last resort'. With the completion of two major projects in the Ancoats area - St Peter's and Murrays' Mills - and with the enouragement of English Heritage and the support of the Charity Commission, Ancoats BPT transformed itself into Heritage Works BPT in January 2007, undertaking new projects further afield than Ancoats.
