Heritage at Risk 2022 Registers

The audience for the Heritage at Risk Register is wide-ranging and includes local authorities, owners, developers, the general public, and buildings preservation trusts. Heritage at risk dates back to the 1990s when English Heritage, with support in particular from local authorities, produced the first Buildings at Risk Register.

Since 2008 we have systematically increased our understanding on the condition and
management of listed sites, although since early 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted data collection and collation for both our staff and our local authority colleagues. As there was less disruption during the 2022 reporting year, we have been able to carry out more on-site checks of entries on, additions to and removals from the Register. Where this hasn’t been possible desk-based assessments and updates have been carried out.

The Register includes buildings and structures, places of worship, archaeological sites, battlefields, wrecks, parks and gardens, and conservation areas known to be at risk as a result of neglect, decay or inappropriate development.

The Register is produced annually as part of Historic England's Heritage at Risk programme. Previous years' Heritage at Risk Registers are available to download on the Historic England website.

More information on the programme including latest findings, how to get involved and analysis of each of the types of sites on the Register can be found on the Historic England website.
