Louth Civic Trust
Louth Civic Trust is an independent local charity encouraging community pride
and passion, for the history and identity of its buildings, streets and public places.
It aims to protect and manage change in the town’s landscape and architectural heritage through campaigning, education and action.

Louth is a classic brick built market town with fine Georgian and Victorian buildings, much of it on a planned medieval street pattern with an open market space.

The older central parts of the town are designated as a Conservation Area.

Under the commanding sight of the spire of St James’s Church, the town centre has retained its character of small shops and businesses providing individual service.

All this, together with, a wide range of facilities and attractions make Louth a desirable place to live, work and visit.

For more information on Louth’s architectural heritage view 'Discover the places and spaces below Louth's Skyline' publications page.




As an independent organisation we can represent public concern through liaison with local authorities, government, private enterprise and local initiatives


We provide information for people living and working in Louth and the surrounding area on local architecture and building heritage, the town’s Conservation Area, listed buildings, local issues and national campaigns through Civic Voice.


Where necessary as an organisation we co-ordinate plans for conservation, restoration and regeneration of buildings or open spaces or take direct action to prevent plans that would have irreversible effects on our townscape.

For more information see our what we do and get involved pages or the website.
