In pictures: Jewish Architecture

Princes Road Synagogue in Liverpool

English Heritage says Jewish architecture is at risk as the community diminishes. Liverpool's Princes Road Synagogue is one of the buildings appearing in a new guidebook.

Clifford's Tower, York

Clifford's Tower in York is one of 300 landmarks highlighted in the book. Many from the city's Jewish community died here in 1190 after seeking refuge from an angry mob.

Bevis Marks interior, London

Buildings like Britain's oldest synagogue Bevis Marks in central London have made a "magnificent" contribution to the nation's heritage, say heritage bosses.

Bradford Synagogue Ark

The guidebook, which includes the Bradford Synagogue Ark, coincides with the 350th anniversary of the re-settlement of Jews in England under Oliver Cromwell after expulsion.

East Window of Grimsby Synagogue

The east window of Grimsby Synagogue also appears in the book. English Heritage chief executive Simon Thurley said Jewish buildings must be saved before a "point of no-return".

Emanuel Memorial Fountain, Southsea

Broadcaster and writer Rabbi Lionel Blue said monuments, such as the Emanuel Memorial Fountain in Southsea, reflected the "ever-changing situation" of Jewish people.

Urmston Jewish Cemetery, Trafford

The book, called Jewish Heritage in England, reveals Jewish cemeteries, like the Urmston Cemetery in Trafford, also play a part in English history.

Singers Hill interior, Birmingham

The interiors of the "cathedral" synagogues are some of the most dramatic, such as at Singers Hill in Birmingham. Some have been demolished recently for redevelopment.
