What is a listed property?

Listed properties are of special historic or architectural importance, dating from the medieval period through to the 1930’s. Even some significant modern buildings are listed. Buildings that have this level of special interest are placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

If you are unsure if your building is listed, you can search the National Heritage List (external link), or contact your local authority.
