Victorian Society Top 10 list reveals eclectic selection of endangered buildings

The Victorian Society has released their annual Top 10 Endangered Buildings List.

The list recognises Victorian and Edwardian buildings and structures throughout England and Wales, which are at risk and aims to increase awareness to help save them.

The buildings on the list include a Victorian seaside winter gardens, a set of seven London gasholders, a Victorian jam factory and attached village, and a former orphanage.

All of the buildings are Grade II or Grade II* listed, and yet have been neglected for so long that they have now reached a critical point of dereliction: only urgent action can prevent them from being lost forever.
