The six South Tyneside buildings and sites currently at risk, according to Heritage England

A number of sites across the region are deemed to be ‘at risk’ by the heritage group.

The annual Heritage at Risk register offers an update on buildings and areas around the country that are most at risk from being lost.

Used as a part of the UK Government’s official statistics, the register highlights cultural assets which are at risk through neglect, decay or development which is inappropriate for the area according to Heritage England.

Grade one listed buildings and registered parks and gardens are covered by the register, in addition to scheduled monuments, historic battlefields, protected wreck sites and conservation areas which are considered to be at risk.

Grade two listed buildings of religious significance are also included in the register which began in the mid 1980s.

England. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own registers.

Within South Tyneside there are six points of concern, with two in Jarrow and Cleadon with one each in Boldon and Whitburn.
