Heritage at Risk Places Saved from Harm in 2017

Each year the South East office runs a Twitter Advent Calendar sharing images, videos and stories of historic sites which have come off the Heritage at Risk register.

The South East has 490 heritage at risk sites, these include structures listed at Grade I or II*, scheduled monuments, parks and gardens, conservation areas, wrecks and battlefields all suffering from neglect, decay or inappropriate development.

The Advent Calendar is our way of celebrating the hard work of communities, volunteers, individuals and our own teams in saving these places and getting them back into good condition.

Each Friday we featured a video of a different site to allow you to discover a bit more about how these special places have been saved from harm.
