The Victorian Society asks residents in England and Wales to nominate threatened Victorian buildings for their Top 10 Endangered Buildings of 2020 list.
This is a fantastic chance to get involved with the fight to save our heritage. To nominate a building simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the year, location, and why the building deserves to be included in our campaign. Nominated buildings must be dated between 1837 and 1914, and situated in either England or Wales.
Have you noticed an abandoned and derelict Victorian building near you? Are you worried a beautiful Victorian building is going to be demolished? Nominate the building for a chance for it to be saved.
Our biggest push of the year to save the most at risk Victorian and Edwardian buildings is fast approaching. Our annual Top 10 Endangered Buildings campaign brings to the forefront the most dilapidated and neglected buildings around England and Wales that are in desperate need of public attention to be saved.
Griff Rhys-Jones, President of the Victorian Society states, ‘It is that time of year again. Time to assemble that list of beloved and imaginative buildings in need of our attention. The Top 10 Endangered Buildings List really matters. When a serious case of arson happened in Ipswich docks this year, one of the reasons that the story gained traction was because the Victorian Society had highlighted the parlous state of the Tolly Cobbold Brewery in their annual Top 10 List. In our Top 10 List last year, we saw the sheer extent of Victorian ingenuity and imagination, ranging from schools to tunnels. So please have a think and nominate buildings that need to be noticed. The Victorian legacy is still under threat and this is an opportunity to help the Society get well-deserved public support for its hard and unceasing work. We need your nominations.’
