An old fertiliser factory in Suffolk has be named as one of the most endangered buildings in the country.

Fison’s Fertiliser Factory in Bramford has made the Victorian Society's top 10 Endangered Buildings list 2017.

Fison’s Fertiliser Factory was built as a factory for the production of superphosphate fertiliser by Joseph Fison in the mid-19th century.

The buildings known as the North Warehouse are now the only structures remaining on the site of one of the major British brands of the Victorian era.

Since the site closed in 2003, redevelopment plans have been approved but no progression has been made and the building - which still maintains many of its original features.

Christopher Costelloe, Victorian Society Director, said: “It’s a sad site to see what such an important part of Victorian industrial history has been reduced to.

"Fison’s Fertiliser Factory is in a very sorry state but action can still be taken to secure and revitalise the North Warehouse buildings.

"There is currently a petition in place which we encourage people to sign, and hope that increased publicity will mean the redevelopment does not suffer any more delay.”
