Sadness in Radford over unloved historic buildings that are in poor condition

Residents in Radford are ‘sad’ over the condition of two historical buildings. Two buildings in the area have been ranked as being in poor condition by Historic England.

According to conservationists, these buildings are believed to be in danger of serious, potentially irreversible decline. In Radford, the Church of St Peter and Capitol Bingo and Social Club are on the at risk register.

It has left residents concerned over the longevity of these historic buildings. Talking about Church of St Peter, Nottingham resident Eve Perrons said: “I mean its quite pretty so I probably would be [sad to see it go]. I like history, I have a book at home of old photos of Nottingham.

“I love old fashioned buildings, I don’t like the modern ones. More needs to be done to protect them.” The Grade II church on the junction of Hartley Road and Churchfield Lane, was built in 1812 in the Early English and Decorated styles.

What stands today is considered to be in poor condition. The roof coverings are in a bad state which has lead to water getting into the church and causing interior damage.

According to Historic England, the church has been subject to antisocial behaviour and grant funding is currently being sought to pay for the repairs. Local Radford resident Paul Holmes, 61, said: “It would be sad for it to fall into a state of disrepair.

“It is a very old building so should not go. The other building [Capitol Bingo and Social Club] is a bit of an eye-sore. It’s not to my taste so I wouldn’t mind if that one went.”

The Grade II Capitol Bingo and Social Club was previously home to a cinema in the 1930s and is now a Zionist Church. The building’s roof is said to be in poor condition with water leaking into the property.

Historic England have ranked the building on Churchfield Lane as being in immediate risk of rapid deterioration or loss. Mary Coxon, 56, from Radford said: “It would be a shame to see the building go. It is in a bad state so it would be nice to see some work done on it.

“Its sad when any older building is falling apart.” Some emergency work has already been carried out but the building owners are keen to do more. They are in discussion with the National Lottery Heritage Fund to help carry out the works.
