The future of a popular museum is in doubt unless organisers can find new premises.
Monifieth House of Memories, managed by Monifieth Local History Society, is seeking an alternative location after its High Street base became unusable.
Margaret Copland, of the society, said there was now a real danger the museum could be forced to close.
She said: “Not only are we risking our own health and safety due to adverse conditions, we are exposing members of the public who visit to those same dangers.
“As a result, we are desperately trying to find a new home but we are finding that extremely difficult.
Ms Copland added: “For the past 14 years we have built up a massive collection of items on the history and heritage of Monifieth.
“We have a huge online following and people come from far and wide to trace their ancestors and find out as much as they can about their local heritage.
“We have become very well recognised and regularly loan items to other museums.
“We are now a major tourist attraction and our volunteers do a marvellous job of running the centre and keeping the history and heritage of Angus alive.”

The society has submitted a community asset transfer request, asking for a lease on another Angus Council-owned property, the former Angus Access office which was also the police station, which will go before councillors next month.
Ms Copland said the dream was ultimately to create a Monifieth Heritage Centre but added: “We desperately want to continue providing the service we do but we need someone to come forward to help us. We don’t know where this leaves us but it’s not looking good.”
A council spokesman said: “We have received a community asset transfer request from Monifieth Local History Society, which will go before the policy and resources committee on October 9.”
