Three Gloucestershire buildings have been removed from the new edition of the Buildings at Risk Register.

The buildings are among 10 from the South West to be removed from the list compiled by English Heritage.

The Grade 2 listed Old Farmhouse at High Meadow in Coleford has been repaired and is now in use.

The Grade 1 Augustinian Priory of St Oswalds in Gloucester has also been removed as has the old teapot cafe building of 66 Westgate Street.

Upper floors

The priory has received a grant from English Heritage to allow a costed condition report to be prepared on its future.

The teapot building is due to be converted into a single residential unit in the two upper floors with a refurbished shop on the ground floor.

Both English Heritage and Gloucester City Council have offered grants towards its refurbishment.

English Heritage launched its 2006 Buildings at Risk register of the most vulnerable Grade I and II buildings and ancient monuments, in London on Monday.
