Industrial Heritage at Risk

Newman Brothers Coffin Works

Listed industrial buildings are more at risk than almost any other kind of heritage, according to a major research project carried out by English Heritage. You can find out more about the threats to our industrial heritage in this section, as well as how to get involved in rescuing it, re-using it and caring for it. So, whether you are an owner or a developer, whether you are involved in a local trust, work for a local authority or whether you just want to find out about industrial buildings with a connection to your family, we hope you find something relevant and inspiring.
