            The cemetery chapels survey

            In February 2009 we called for help to document the state of cemetery chapels around the country. We heard about boarded up and derelict chapels; chapels converted into homes or used for storage; as well as those still in use for worship. Now an advisory group at the Ministry of Justice is interested in our findings and we'd like your input to help bring the survey up to date.

                                    The Victorian Society declares Manningham Pool a heritage crime scene

                                    The Victorian Society protests at the closure of Manningham Baths as the Grade II-listed Edwardian pool finally closes its doors to swimmers.


                                      Give Manningham Pool one last chance!

                                      That’s the plea from the Victorian Society in response to Bradford City Council’s announcement that Manningham Pool will close on Friday 8th July.
