The AHF appreciates that neglected buildings which are all too familiar in our towns, cities and countryside can, with a little imagination and a lot of enthusiasm, be rescued to become assets for their communities by people wanting to make a difference. The AHF has helped hundreds of organisations throughout the UK to do exactly that.

No 20 to 22 Horsefair, Kidderminster have been shortlisted for Best Rescue of a Historic Building Award in this year’s Historic England Angel Awards.  These late 18th and early 19th century cottages represent the last vestiges of a rich textile tradition in the town, one that goes back to the early 16th century.  Despite this they were unloved and empty for over 10 years before Worcestershire Historic Building Trust took them on.  The Architectural Heritage Fund offered early funding for viability studies and project management support which enabled the Trust to effect a total transformation from unstable ruins to high quality homes. During the project, the Trust worked really hard to engage the local community and the result is a great legacy of training, educational materials and interpretation which can be viewed on http://www.weaverscottages.info/. The houses are currently up for sale.  

If you think they deserve to win their category you can vote via the Angel Award website on: https://historicengland.org.uk/get-involved/angel-awards/
