Your Business

Many people own historic buildings from which they also run businesses selling goods and services. For some owners the buildings are themselves the business. They could be let out or redeveloped and sold on to produce an income. Or the building could be an attraction in its own right, such as a country house.

These pages will give you information on what it means for your business to be in an older building, how to look after it, and how to make changes to it.
