Aims and Objectives - Conservation and Volunteering in Wales

ABC’s purpose is to help support the local community and to encourage appreciation of the contribution that vernacular architecture has made over time – encapsulating the skills and history of generations of hill farmers, how they lived their lives and created a community around themselves. ABC will focus on buildings that are generally not listed, but which represent the built form within the landscape developed by people and activities that have defined the area and given it its character.

ABC’s objectives are to preserve for the benefit of the people of Carmarthenshire and Powys, Wales and of the Nation, the historical and constructional heritage that may exist in and around Carmarthenshire and Powys in buildings (including any structure or erection and any part of a building as so defined) of particular beauty or historical, architectural or constructional interest.

ABC’s aims are to

  1. Preserve and restore ancient and historic, principally, vernacular buildings
  2. Work with local Communities to identify buildings at risk
  3. Identify with local communities opportunities for preservation, interpretation and regeneration, and any other activities in support of the charity's objects
