English heritage publishes its Heritage At Risk list

Hagley Hall: Inside Out West Midlands

English Heritage has published its list of the historic buildings at other Heritage sites it considers to be "at risk".

In Herfordshire this includes castles, the city walls in Hereford, and parts of Offa's Dyke.

Some of the follies in the grounds of Hagley Hall in Worcestershire are also on the register.

In Herefordshire the castles at Clifford, Richard's Castle, Huntington, Kilpeck, Lyonshall, Snodhill and Penyard are all highlighted as being in a poor state of repair.

Parts of the medieval city walls in Hereford are also described as being in a poor condition.

Offa's Dyke, the ancient boundary between England and Wales, is also highlighted in the "at risk" list.

The condition of parts of the dyke is declining due to soil erosion.


The obelisk and the Temple of Theseus, that stand in the grounds of Hagley Hall, are both considered "at risk" by English Heritage.

They also express concerns about the remains of Guesten Hall, in the grounds of Worcester Cathedral.

A 16th century bridge across the River Avon at Eckington is also said to be in a poor condition.

Inside Out West Midlands and is broadcast on Monday, 17 January at 19:30 on BBC One.
