We're here to help, but to keep us all safe please only come to the office if necessary. Most of our services are available online but if you do need to see someone, please book an appointment to avoid long wait times.
If the building or structure you are looking for does not appear in your search results, it may still be listed.
There are two main reasons why it may not appear:
- The name or number of the building/structure may have changed since the time of listing.
- The building/structure may not be listed in its own right but it could still be listed through its position within the ‘curtilage’, or grounds, of a listed building.
For a curtilage building/structure to be considered listed, it must satisfy a number of tests:
- It must pre-date the 1st July 1948.
- It must be physically related to the ‘principal’ listed building; i.e. the building for which there is a list description.
- It must have been in the same ownership as the ‘principal’ listed building at the time of listing (for buildings listed on or after the 1st January 1969), or at the 1st January 1969 (for buildings listed before this date).
- It must have served an ancillary or supporting function to the ‘principal’ listed building at the time of listing (for buildings listed on or after the 1st January 1969), or at the 1st January 1969 (for buildings listed before this date).
