John Betjeman described himself as a “poet and a hack”. He was the nation’s teddy-bear and a devotee of unfashionable causes. Grottos, Victorian railway stations, the Metroland and churches were amongst the threatened icons of English culture that Betjeman sought to save. Betjeman was a life-long supporter of the SPAB. He helped with monumentally important campaigns when he was in his early-twenties, becoming a life-member of the Society aged just 25. He sat on the SPAB Committee from 1952 until his death in 1984. In this lecture, Rachel Morley will take a look back over Betjeman’s involvement with SPAB, highlighting his most influential conservation campaigning work and considering his legacy.
