You can find out if your building is listed by searching the National Heritage List for England.
The National Heritage List for England (NHLE) contains all listed buildings, scheduled monuments, protected wrecks and registered parks, gardens and battlefields. The Heritage List is the only official and up to date database of all nationally protected historic buildings and sites in England.
Disclaimer - Please read carefully before searching the list - Additional guidance when searching the National Heritage List
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).
