Nominate the Victorian Society's top ten endangered buildings for 2016
The Victorian Society (Vic Soc) has included an updated campaigning guide with this year’s search to encourage people to fight for the buildings they are concerned about.
The Victorian Society writes:
Once again we are asking the public to nominate the Top Ten 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.
Nominated buildings could be threatened by demolition, neglect or inappropriate redevelopment. The only criteria are that the buildings are in England or Wales and were built between 1837 and 1914.
