North Yorkshire sites on ‘at risk’ register
8:52am Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
TWO buildings, five churches and four archaeological sites in North Yorkshire have been added to English Heritage’s “at risk” register, but six other sites in the region have been taken off the list.
Buildings which have become fresh entries on the organisation’s annual list include the Church of All Saints in Sherburn-in-Elmet and the Church of St Mary in Askham Richard, near York, while four archaeological sites in Scarborough have also been earmarked as in need of preservation.
Sites which have been taken off the register and are no longer classed as being at risk include a lead cupola flue and chimney at Grassington and the Church of St Wilfrid at Monk Fryston. Five East Yorkshire churches have been added to the list, but two have been removed.
English Heritage has also prioritised certain sites for action over the coming year, including the Birdsall Estate in Ryedale and Whorlton Castle in the North York Moors National Park.
The number of sites, buildings and places in Yorkshire which are now on the register totals 823, down from 902 in 2012/13, with 42 being added and 121 removed.
