Statutory listed buildings

These are buildings, objects or structures considered to be of special architectural or historic interest, which need to be preserved for future generations. The list is compiled by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport following advice from Historic England (formerly known as English Heritage).

Statutory listed buildings are protected by legislation in the Planning (listed Buildings Conservation Areas) Act 1990. Learn more about how and why buildings are listed.
