The Victorian Society is asking for public nominations for threatened Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England and Wales

The Victorian Society is asking the public to nominate threatened Victorian and Edwardian buildings for their list of Top 10 Endangered Buildings, to be announced next year.

Griff Rhys Jones, President of the Victorian Society said the public campaign “represents a great opportunity for people to be directly involved in the ever-ongoing process of conservation and preservation. As always, we rely on you. We need local knowledge and alarums.”

This year’s Top Ten Endangered Buildings list, announced in June, saw two councils provide assurances to the Society that they intend to support the buildings on list.

Carlisle Victorian and Turkish Baths and the Coach and Horses Hotel in Wallsend were among those nomniated and added to The Vicotrian Society’s list.

North Tyneside Council has since written to the owner of The Horses Hotel to explore options for its use.

Plas Alltran in Anglesey, on the list in 2020, was purchased by the local Council, and the former Doctor’s surgery is set to become social housing.

The Oldham Prudential Offices, also on the 2020 list, was compulsorily purchased and is undergoing a £8.6m renovation to offer spaces for creative, digital and media businesses when completed in 2024.

Eligible buildings must in England or Wales and built between 1837 and 1914, with a preference for listed buildings.
