Lichfields have recently completed a study of ‘Heritage at Risk’ in London on behalf of Historic England that includes a number of AHF funded projects. The report includes ten case-studies from across London showing how investment in heritage at risk can deliver significant regeneration outcomes, from economic and employment outputs to community engagement and education.
The report features case studies of ‘The Concrete House’ and ‘The Ivy House’, both part AHF funded. Both these and the other case studies show the potential benefits of investing in ‘Heritage at Risk’ and how such investment not only protects heritage buildings but also generates productive assets that address a range of community needs: ‘The Concrete House’ has delivered affordable housing and ‘The Ivy House’ is once again a thriving pub, community and cultural venue.
