Two Ludlow historic monuments remain on Heritage at Risk Register maintained by English Heritage, the town walls and the Buttercross. Ludlow’s Buttercross The Buttercross is described as: “Repair scheme in progress… Functionally redundant buildings with new use agreed but not yet implemented.” The building is in the lowest risk category (F on a scale of A to F). Nevertheless, I am disappointed that the Buttercross is still on the at risk register. Ludlow Town Council has been doing an excellent job of repairing and converting the building into a heritage centre. The building is no longer at risk. I’ll write to English Heritage asking them to remove the building from next year’s edition of the risk register.
