Fire Damage to Former Chicago Rock Building, Barnsley

A Historic England spokesman said:

"We heard the sad news about the fire at the Grade II listed former Chicago Rock building and have been advising Barnsley Council this week on future options for the site.

"Our chief structural engineer has visited the site and we have provided structural advice on the building’s condition. Today, we will be carrying out a laser scan of the front of the building to create an accurate record of it. We recognise how strongly local people feel about the building and will continue to work closely with the council as the situation develops."
