TWO Huddersfield buildings have been added to a list of outstanding heritage properties under threat, it was revealed today.
Folly Hall Mill and 16-20 St George's Square are deemed to be in danger.
Both Grade II listed buildings have been added to English Heritage's Buildings at Risk register.
Folly Hall Mill, built in 1844 at the bottom of Chapel Hill, closed in 1982.
Despite refurbishment of the outside of the building a decade ago, the hulking mill presents a sorry appearance, with rows of broken windows, broken guttering and trees sprouting from its walls.
It has also been a target for arsonists.
Four-storey 16-20 St George's Square dates from 1852 and was built as offices and warehousing.
It houses the Bar-Non nightclub on the ground floor, but it is the empty upper floors which are causing concern.
Trevor Mitchell, English Heritage's assistant director for Yorkshire, said: "There's a particular problem, which is a structural failure in the back wall."
He added that although the bottom floors were used as a nightspot, the upper floors had remained empty for a while.
"When you have a nightclub or pub it generates such a lot of income that people don't have to try too hard to let the top floors," he said.
However, one success story has seen a Kirklees building removed from the register.
Upper Independent Chapel in Heckmondwike has been converted into flats.
A total of 1,500 buildings are in today's register.
Dr Simon Thurley, chief executive of English Heritage said: "The cream of the nation's architectural inheritance is being squandered through neglect and lack of awareness."
