Heritage at Risk in the Movies
The South East has over 500 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. These vulnerable places vary from churches to industrial heritage, coastal forts to formal gardens.
As well as being historically important many of these sites have played a role in popular culture, featuring as the back drop to many of our best loved films and TV series. Historic places often have a sense of mystery and drama making them perfect locations for time travellers, detectives and zombies (though maybe not all at the same time).
The gallery below includes heritage at risk places used as filming locations including the much loved Dr Who as well as Hollywood blockbusters such as Batman Begins and the Imitation Game. If you'd like to see more images of these sites check out our Twitter Feed.
