Charles Church is one of the buildings on the list
A new survey of historic buildings in Plymouth has put over 400 on to an "at risk" register.

They include private homes, churches, walls and other structures.

The council's new Buildings at Risk Register includes over 140 listed buildings along with some scheduled ancient monuments.

They include the Palace Theatre, Charles Church and the city's museum. There are also many private homes and commercial premises.

Places like former warehouses, historic walls and other structures including shelters on the Hoe and a former public toilet in Thorn Park are also listed.

The council says it has contacted the owners of all the properties and it is not meant to be a criticism of the owners, rather a record of the state of the buildings with a view to their future improvement.
