The Twentieth Century Society

Campaigning for outstanding buildings

Emley Moor tower, West Yorkshire

C20 Yorkshire Group formed at AGM

The C20 Yorkshire group covers all four counties of the Yorkshire region. It was established at the 2014 Twentieth Century Society AGM and currently meets in Sheffield, where it has connections with Sheffield Civic Trust and the Sheffield School of Architecture.
Yorkshire is home to many significant and unique twentieth century buildings. A significant example being Sheffield’s Park Hill flats, the largest listed building (Grade II*) in the country, and a unique example being the Grade II listed Emley Moor tower which, at 20 metres taller than The Shard, is the tallest free-standing structure in the UK. However the region also has its fair share of lost buildings which is why it is so important that, through the C20 Yorkshire group, we create a network of individuals who can help keep the Society informed of buildings at risk.
If you would like to become a member and be kept informed of future group events, please contact Andrew Jackson via and follow @c20yorks on Twitter. Andrew studied at the Liverpool School of Architecture and is a Trustee of Sheffield Civic Trust.
