About the show

Across Britain over 600,000 buildings lie unused and unloved, nearly a third of them are commercial.

From high street banks and shops to agricultural buildings – the times we live in are making them redundant and putting them at risk of being demolished or snapped up by big developers.

However, due to the recent relaxation in planning laws, it’s become easier to change the use of these local landmarks, transforming them into family homes which celebrate their past.

In this brand new series architect George Clarke meets the brave people taking on these ambitious projects, preserving our country’s architecture by breathing new life into it.
