The monument was added to Historic England's 'Building's at Risk' register last year and dates back to the 13th Century.

It was commissioned by Edward I between 1291 and 1294 and marks the nightly resting place of his wife Queen Eleanor on her funeral procession to London.

Only three of the original 12 monuments remain.
