Over 200 more heritage sites now 'at risk'

Over 200 more heritage sites now at risk image

More heritage sites have been added to the 'at risk' register than the number that have been saved this year, an annual register has warned.

The annual Heritage at Risk Register 2020, published by Heritage England, shows that while 181 historic buildings and sites have been removed from the list year, 216 entries have been added because of concerns about their condition.

The total number of historic sites at risk of neglect, decay or inappropriate change is now 1,475.

Duncan Wilson, chief executive of Historic England, said: 'It is the varied tapestry of our historic places that helps us define who we are. In testing times such as these, heritage can give us a sense of continuity and bring us solace. We also know that investing in historic places can help boost our economic recovery.

'The 181 places rescued from the register this year show us that good progress is being made, but there is still a long way to go. Many more historic buildings and places need caring for, financial support, strong partnership working and community engagement to give them a brighter future.'
