One down, one to go as Historic England declares Buttercross is no longer at “risk”

There is good news for Ludlow’s heritage with yesterday’s announcement from Historic England that the Buttercross has been removed from its risk register. When last year’s register was published, I said I was disappointed that the Grade I listed building was still considered at risk. Now, the Heritage at Risk 2015 Register confirms, by its omission, that the building is no longer at risk.[1] This is good news indeed and a tribute to all the good work put in by the town council and its local contractors in converting the building to be used as a museum (which should open in the spring).
