Lancashire's built heritage includes historic buildings of many sizes, periods and types, ranging from the humblest barn to the grandest mansion. This remarkable richness and variety reflects the distinctive aspects of the county's history and contributes to the economic life of the county, and the quality of life enjoyed today by residents and visitors alike.
We here provide further analysis on heritage at risk and listings of historic buildings; organisations involved in conservation and regeneration; a variety of other heritage lists; Lancashire museums, historic houses and art purchases; and the heritage, identity and place results from the Royal Society of Arts.
All of the Lancashire heritage at risks sites can be identified in the Appendix document, which is an interactive PDF– this is by means of the model tree or by using the object data tool in Adobe Reader.
The article draws from numerous websites, and we have not included all of them in the 'related websites' on this active server page
These key facts are based on 2015 lottery funding data from the Department for Culture Media and Sport and 2016 data for heritage at risk and listed buildings from Historic England, theatre buildings at risk from the Theatres Trust and the local authority heritage index from the Royal Society of Arts.
For full functionality of the appendix, which is an interactive PDF document, save the file to your computer and open with Adobe Reader. Individual sites can be identified using the object data tool in Adobe Reader (select edit, then analysis, then object data tool). Once a site has been selected by clicking a site with the object data tool, details should appear in the model tree in the left sidebar.
