Grimsby’s Ice Factory named one of seven most endangered heritage sites in Europe

By March 26, 2018Local News, News

Grimsby’s historic Ice Factory has been named as one of the most endangered heritage sites in the whole of Europe that is in desperate need of saving.

The iconic building at Grimsby Docks has been selected as one of seven endangered heritage sites in Europe by cultural heritage organisation Europa Nostra.

The Grade II listed Ice Factory was nominated by SAVE Britain’s Heritage last year due to widespread local and national concerns about the derelict and deteriorating condition of this historically significant building.

The site was put on a shortlist competing against 12 other sites from across the continent, such as; the historic centre of Vienna, the Castle of Sammezzano in Tuscany, Italy and post-Byzantine churches in Albania.

It was part of a project run by Europa Nostra in conjunction with the European Investment Bank Insititute.
