25 at risk heritage areas or buildings in B&NES
Some 25 buildings, scheduled monuments and conservation areas are officially at heritage risk in the Bath area.
Government watchdog English Heritage’s latest At Risk Register lists the former King Edward’s School building in Broad Street, the Cleveland Baths at Hampton Row, the 19th century Victoria Bridge and 13th century Hinton Priory at Hinton Charterhouse as among the 1,700 structures and zones under threat in the south west.
The conservation areas in Wellow, Batheaston and South Stoke are among those in B&NES said to be at risk from neglect, decay or dereliction.
The annual list covers only grade 1 and grade II* buildings and areas and English Heritage is now investigating the impact of neglect on grade II structures.

Andrew Vines, planning director for English Heritage in the South West, said: “Grade II listed buildings are the bulk of the South West’s heritage treasury. When one of them is lost, it’s as though someone has rubbed out a bit of the past – something that made your street or your village special will have gone.”
