Heritage at Risk 2017 national summary leaflet

Front cover of a Heritage at Risk 2017 national summary leaflet

The audience for the Heritage at Risk Register is wide-ranging and includes local authorities, owners, developers, general public, buildings preservation trusts. Heritage at risk dates back to the 1990s when English Heritage, with support in particular from local authorities, produced the first Buildings at Risk Register. Since 2008 we have systematically increased our understanding on the condition and management of listed sites and in 2017 have the most complete picture ever.

The Register now includes buildings or structures, places of worship, archaeological sites, battlefields, wrecks, parks and gardens, and conservation area known to be at risk as a result of neglect, decay or inappropriate development. Previous years Heritage at Risk Registers are available to download on the Historic England website.

An updated leaflet is produced annually as part of Historic England's Heritage at Risk programme. More information on the programme including latest findings, how to get involved and analysis of each of the types of sites on the Register can be found on the Historic England website.
