Report reveals heritage at risk

The former AB Cooke warehouse in Little London has been included in a report on Isle of Wight heritage at risk. Picture by Robin Crossley.

UNDER threat heritage has been identified in a new report which lists buildings, structures, parks and gardens considered to be 'at risk’ or 'vulnerable’ in the Medina Valley.

The document has been published by Isle of Wight Council planners and will be followed by similar reports for Ryde and The Bay Area.

The document mirrors English Heritage’s national 'Heritage at Risk’ register, but unlike English Heritage’s document it identifies grade II listed buildings and locally listed assets.

It is hoped that publishing such a document will raise awareness and help secure their future.

The report can be accessed on by clicking the Medina HAAR tab on the 'Conservation and Design’ section.

•Among the 441 listed assets, 20 have been identified as 'at risk or 'vulnerable’ and include:

•The cement chamber kiln at Stag Lane.

•The Granary at Werrar Farm, Northwood.

•Frank James Memorial Hospital, East Cowes

•Former stable range at Northwood House.

•St Cross Mill, St Cross Lane, Newport.

•Medina View, Trinity Road, East Cowes.

•The former AB Cooke warehouse at Little London, Newport.
