We have recently valued many period homes in Rugby and Leamington and on a few occasions some sellers were unsure if either they were listed and/or what was actually listed/protected. So I thought it would be good to share the Heritage Website portal that holds all the invaluable information on listed buildings across the UK.
Listing is the act of identifying the most important parts of our heritage so they can be protected by law. In listing historic buildings or sites we celebrate their significance and make sure that our history can be enjoyed by present and future generations.
The list of protected buildings or sites is known as The Heritage List (officially the National Heritage List for England or NHLE) it is the official and up to date record of all nationally protected historic buildings or sites in England.
This record is a searchable treasure trove of places that are special. It contains information on Listed Buildings, Scheduled Monuments, Registered Parks, Gardens and Battlefields and Protected Wreck Sites. You can also share your own understanding and photos of the places you know
please use the link for the website to search.
