Heritage at Risk in the East Midlands

Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register provides an annual snapshot of the health of England's historic environment.

In the East Midlands additions to this year's Register include one of the tallest windmills in England, Nottingham's historic subscription library, and a nationally important industrial complex.

Sites repaired and removed from the Register include St Mary's Freeby, Stydd Hall, which had been on the Heritage at Risk Register since it was launched in 1998, and the magnificent ruins of Crowland Abbey.

We will be featuring these and more sites here over the coming months. You can read about what has been achieved at Oakham Castle, Rutland, which is making very good progress towards being removed from the Register.

This year's register incorporates sites in North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire which were previously included on the Yorkshire and Humber Register. Consequently there has been a significant increase in the number of entries on the East Midlands Register this year.

Across the region 25 sites have been removed from the Register and 37 sites have been added. Over the past year, Historic England has offered £1.3 million in grants to help 21 of the region's best loved and most important historic sites.
