Senior BEEs - Heritage at Risk - Clapton Pond

Heritage at risk was the theme of the latest Senior BEE session when they met with Rebecca Barrett from English Heritage.

We invited Rebecca to talk to the group about the Heritage at Risk register – a database of neglected and decaying listed buildings and historic sites which is released every year by English Heritage (and has just been updated).

Rebecca explained how the register works, shared recent success stories and focused on some local examples of buildings at risk at Clapton Pond – where Pond House has come off the register but its neighbour the Bishopswood Almshouses have been added.

After the talk the Senior BEEs went over to Clapton Pond to take a closer look at the buildings, reinforcing Rebecca’s message that you don’t have to look far to find heritage at risk.
