Cockburn Association

The Cockburn Association is named after Henry, Lord Cockburn, 1777-1854, who campaigned to preserve the best of Edinburgh's buildings and amenities.

The Cockburn Association was established in 1875.  It still continues to campaign on planning, transport and architectural issues in Edinburgh.

The association also coordinates the arrangements for the Doors Open Day in Edinburgh each September.  This gives access, for one day each year, to a number of buildings that are not normally open to the public..
