Saving London’s Heritage
07 05 2018
Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register is a tool to help understand the ‘health’ of London’s historic environment. It includes buildings and sites at risk from neglect, decay or inappropriate development, and helps focus advice and support where it’s most needed. In London there are 683 sites on the Heritage at Risk Register, reflecting the richness of our capital’s heritage – from the remains of a medieval moated manor house in Bromley, to a 1950s concrete sculpture on the Great West Road.
Rebecca Barrett, Principal Adviser of the London Heritage at Risk team at Historic England will highlight some of London’s most interesting and unusual sites at risk. She’ll touch on the common challenges of finding imaginative solutions to these sites, but the great rewards that successful projects can help to deliver. She will also talk about the importance of strong partnerships in saving London’s heritage at risk, and how London Society members can play their part.
