The Victorian Society is calling on Northumberland residents to nominate threatened Victorian buildings for the 2017 Top 10 Endangered Buildings List.

Do you know a Victorian or Edwardian building you feel is under threat? Is there something you wish you could do to help secure its future?

Every year, The Victorian Society compiles a list of the Top 10 endangered buildings in England and Wales, shortlisted by its architecture and conservation experts.

Appearing in the Top 10 Endangered Buildings List will give your nominated building heightened publicity and could help save it.

There has been good news for several buildings elsewhere in the country that have previously appeared on the Society’s annual Top Ten List.

Christopher Costelloe, director of the Victorian Society, said: “Getting an endangered building in the Top Ten is an invaluable way to bring it to the attention of the people who matter, the people who can ensure its protection.

“Buildings in previous Top 10 Lists have been bought, sold, restored, protected and repurposed, all because of the people who nominated and campaigned for them.”

To nominate a building contact the Victorian Society via email – media@victoriansociety.org.uk – or post – 1 Priory Gardens, London W4 1TT – with brief details of the building(s) and at least one photo by Friday, July 7.

The chosen Top 10 list will be announced on Wednesday, September 13.
