A campaign group is calling on investors to take on some of Wales' most endangered historical buildings and restore them to their former glory.

A new list of at risk properties has been published by the campaign group Save Britain's Heritage.

Here are list of some of Wales' most endangered buildings:

Other endangered buildings include:

  • North Wales Hospital Denbigh

  • Swansea’s Albert Hall

  • Kinmel Hall, near Abergele

  • Gwrych Castle

  • The Swiss Cottage in Swansea

The Victorian Society is asking the public to nominate buildings for its Top Ten most endangered Victorian and Edwardian buildings in England and Wales. It follows a similar campaign last year.

This led to £250,000 worth of funding being given for the emergency repair work at the Navigation Colliery in Crumlin.

‘Save the Cardiff Coal Exchange’ group has been set up to help secure funding for restoration with use as a hub for media businesses.

The Exchange is also due to be used as the set of a new film ‘The Crow’.

It's thought the fee will be put towards emergency restoration works
