HERITAGE AT RISK, SAYS MP

Eastbourne MP Nigel Waterson has expressed his ‘serious concern’ following an English Heritage report which criticises the state of repair of local historic buildings. The newly published “Heritage at Risk Register” states that the Redoubt fortress and two historic Martello Towers in Eastbourne are in “poor” condition.

The report alleges that part of the Redoubt in particular “is in very poor condition”, that there is “water ingress” and that “the moat walls are decaying”.

Nigel commented: “I hope that the owners of these historic structures – especially the Borough Council who own the Redoubt – will act on this Report. Its findings are very worrying indeed.”
