Listed buildings

The list of buildings of special architectural or historic interest is a Register, compiled by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport who record the best of British buildings.

 

It comprises a wide variety of structures from castles and cathedrals to milestones and village pumps.  Not all structures are what we may consider to be 'beautiful' as some are included purely for their historical value.  This heritage 'Register' covers the entire country.
