SEVERAL Huddersfield landmarks are officially decaying.

The English Heritage watchdog this week unveiled this year’s Buildings at Risk Register.

There are 123 Grade 1 and Grade 2 listed structures which are classed as vulnerable.

They include Milnsbridge House on Dowker Street and Folly Hall Mill.

The six-storey mill, which was built in 1844, has many broken windows and damaged gutters.

Also on the list is Bar Non in St George’s Square. It was built as offices and warehousing by Sir William Tite in 1852.

English Heritage says the guttering has failed and the walls are bowing.

The Kirklees Priory Gatehouse at Cooper Bridge is also a cause for concern. The Grade 1 aisled barn is classed as decaying.

The Grade 1 Malthouse in the grounds of nearby Kirklees Hall is classed as in fair condition.

But there’s better news for the Nether Hall Barn at Rawthorpe, which has been removed from the ‘at risk’ list after repair work.

English Heritage’s Yorkshire spokes-woman, Maddy Jago, said: “More than half the buildings on the original list – drawn up in 1999 – have now been removed.

“But there is still more to be done. We estimate that more than 70 of the buildings now on the list are capable of re-use.”

Nationally, there are 1,235 buildings on the ‘at risk’ list, with 52 new entries this year.
