Heritage at Risk 2018 in the West Midlands
There are 433 entries on the Heritage at Risk Register for the West Midlands, consisting of a range of heritage assets including scheduled monuments, listed buildings, conservation areas and registered parks and gardens.
Historic England's annual Heritage at Risk Register was published on Thursday 8 November 2018. It gives a useful insight into the buildings, sights and conservation areas that are considered most at risk.
Historic England is encouraging everyone to become actively involved in looking after our cherished local places. Past experience shows us that solutions follow when people work together, with passion and perseverance. We use the Heritage at Risk Register to identify what is at most in need of support from the community, as well as where we should best target our specialist advice and grant funding.
2018 is the 20th anniversary of the Heritage at Risk Register and we want to celebrate the hundreds of buildings and monuments that have been saved in 1998. Look through the galleries below to see some of the sites that have been saved, that are now at risk, and where there is still work to be done.
