At Risk - English Heritage

news

Every year English Heritage publishes a list of those sites most at risk of being lost. Camden has 43 properties listed.  In our area, highlights include:

39 Great James Street, 9 Calthorpe Street, 66, 67, 70-72 and 77-82 Guilford Street  as well as the ladies and gentlemen\'s public conveniences, Guilford Place.

The Heritage at Risk programme provides a dynamic picture of the health of England's built heritage. It also provides advice on how best to save those sites most at risk of being lost forever.

The Programme was launched in 2008, as a way of understanding the overall state of England\'s historic sites. In particular, the programme identifies those sites that are most at risk of being lost as a result of neglect, decay or inappropriate development.' 'English Heritage is committed to reducing the overall number of sites at risk of loss as a result of neglect, decay and inappropriate development. How this will be achieved is set out in the Heritage at Risk Strategy.
