Nominate Liverpool and Merseyside's Endangered Buildings

NATIONAL charity, the Victorian Society, is asking Liverpool and Merseyside to nominate buildings for its Top 10 endangered Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England and Wales for 2016. Appearing in the Top Ten focuses attention on buildings and can help save them. Nominations close, on Friday, 1 July 2016. The Society has also published an updated campaigning guide to encourage people to fight for the buildings they are concerned about. There is hope for 1 of last year's endangered buildings from the North West. It has been reported that developers have now expressed an interest in fire damaged Central Plaza Hotel, Carlisle (Grade II, 1880, Daniel Birkett). Sadly, after a fire, one of our 2013 Top 10 Endangered Buildings, the colossal Grade II listed Accrington Conservative Club (1890 to 1891) designed by architects William James Morley & George Herbert has now been mostly demolished. 

Christopher Costelloe, Victorian Society Director, said:- 'We had a phenomenal response to last year's Top 10, no doubt helped by the support of our Vice President Griff Rhys Jones. The future now looks much brighter for many of the buildings we featured. I hope the public will once again scour their local areas to nominate buildings for our 2016 list. Focusing attention on neglected buildings, whether by inclusion in the Top 10 or by using our new campaigning guide, can help save them, which in turn, benefits the wider community.'

To nominate a building contact the Victorian Society via email or via post, sending a letter to:- 1 Priory Gardens, London, W4 1TT; with brief details of the building/s, on, before Friday, 1 July 2016. All the buildings or structures nominated will be considered by the Society's architecture and conservation experts before the 2016 list of the Top 10 Endangered Buildings in England and Wales is announced on 14 September 2016. Nominated buildings could be threatened by demolition, neglect or inappropriate redevelopment.
