The Victorian Society Top 10

September 12, 2017

 

Today the Victorian Society published their latest list of the top buildings that they consider to be at-risk.

 

Included on the list is the Grade II Great Northern Railway Warehouse, Derby. Built in 1877-8 by Kirk & Randall of Sleaford on the site that also includes the Grade II Engine House and the Grade II Friar Gate Bridge.

 

Having been left to dereliction for over 40 years by the current owners the building is now nothing more than a partially roofed shell with the surrounding ground being overgrown and frequented by drug-users.

 

For many years we have tried to raise awareness of the buildings plight, it is such an important part of Derby’s past and railway heritage. This included the nomination of the building for inclusion on the Victorian Society list and though it is sad to know that it has been added there is also hope that the publicity will prompt action to taken.
