BBC London is profiling the two local buildings which could be saved if YOU vote for them.

Watch the TV reports here on the two buildings plus other projects.

(Video will be added throughout the campaign so please keep checking back)


Strawberry Hill House
Hidden away in a quiet west London suburb is one of the most unusal houses ever built. Strawberry Hill in Twickenham has been designated one of the most endangered monuments in the world. It needs to find £5m to survive. So should Strawberry Hill get your vote?

Severndroog Castle
A dramatic gothic tower on the top of the hill - hardly your typical London skyline. In fact Severndroog Castle in Greenwich has been with us for the past 200 years.

Neglected in the past the tower is in a sorry condition. So should it be restored? Judge for yourself by clicking on this video.

St Pancras
We look at of London's most ambitious building projects - transforming a Victorian station into an international rail terminal. The work being done on St Pancras is still three years away from completion. Gillian Joseph's been given exclusive access to the work. Watch her TV report here

Danson House
Danson House in Bexleyheath has been described as one of the most outstanding examples of Georgian architecture. But in the early 90s the building was close to collapse. That was until English Heritage got involved. The mansion will now re-open to the public next spring. Gillian Joseph has been given rare access to one of the London's most remarkable restoration success stories.
