2014 Top ten endangered buildings

Sheffield’s missing Crimean War Monument

This tribute to Britain’s war dead has been broken up and placed in storage for over ten years, the column feared lost. We call on Sheffield Council to set out its plans for the monument in time for Remembrance Day.


    Trentham Hall, Staffordshire

    Once part of England’s grandest country houses, mostly demolished in 1912 due to pollution in the River Trent, the remains give an idea of the Hall’s former glory but are in a very poor state


      Crumlin Navigation Colliery

      A nationally important, nearly complete, complex of both Grade II* and II buildings. Plans for use as community hub at risk due to pollution


        Abney Park Cemetery Chapel, Stoke Newington

        The oldest surviving non-denominational chapel in Europe, and Hosking’s only surviving public building, is now a picturesque ruin on the brink of being lost without immediate action


          Tonedale Mill, Somerset

          Plans to redevelop the site fell through during the recession, but as the housing market recovers, is a sensitive housing scheme now viable?


            All Souls Church, Hastings, East Sussex

            Grade II*-listed church at risk of demolition


              Cardiff Coal Exchange

              Declared unsafe and in imminent danger of collapse by Cardiff Council in 2013, a thorough heritage assessment is urgently needed


                Hartlepool’s former Wesley Chapel

                Prominent Grade II-listed landmark deteriorating while awaiting hotel conversion


                  Greengate Public Baths, Salford

                  Action needed to save this rare survival of a handsome early public baths designed by one of Manchester’s best 19th century architects


                    Hammerhead crane, Isle of Wight

                    Giant cantilever crane in Cowes used for the production of naval warships
