Heritage at Risk Turns 20!

Heritage at Risk 2018

Historic England's 2018 Heritage at Risk Register is published today. This marks 20 years from the publication of our first ever Register of Buildings at Risk across England. The fantastic news is that in 2018 over two thirds of buildings and structures that were on the 1998 Register are now safe. However there is still much work to be done.

Through our Heritage at Risk programme we continue to record and understand the condition of our nation's built heritage, working towards solutions.  We have dedicated Heritage at Risk specialists in our regional offices and they have a strong record of success in working with owners, local communities and funding partners to secure the reuse of our shared heritage. Our regional teams also make effective use of our own grant budget, and last year Historic England gave grant aid of £9.9m to 236 projects. This grant aid is often the first step to securing the future of a site and helps give confidence to other funders as their support is sought.

It’s our experience that the impact of saving a Heritage at Risk site goes far beyond physical repair. The statistics in the register underpin many stories of communities coming together to rescue and reuse a much loved local landmark and saved heritage delivering wider regeneration with tangible economic and social benefits. To read more of these inspiring stories please follow this link and:

  • Read our leaflet
  • See the top 20 rescues of the last 20 years
  • Watch our celebratory film

You’ll also be seeing more of these stories in the press over the next few days.
