Industrial Heritage at Risk
Listed industrial buildings are more at risk than almost any other kind of heritage, according to a major research project carried out by English Heritage. You can find out more about the threats to our industrial heritage in this section, as well as how to get involved in rescuing it, re-using it and caring for it. So, whether you are an owner or a developer, whether you are involved in a local trust, work for a local authority or whether you just want to find out about industrial buildings with a connection to your family, we hope you find something relevant and inspiring.
Industrial Heritage at Risk covers the period 1750 - to date, in particular from the Industrial Revolution to the onset of the First World War.
Historic England and its predecessors have a notable and long record in protecting our industrial heritage through the designation process.
This section provides information for those who own, manage or are developing an industrial site or want to set up a building preservation trust.
Whether you are interested in getting your hands dirty by volunteering at an industrial heritage site, or simply finding out a bit more about our industrial past from the comfort of your computer, there are lots of ways to get involved.
