Listed buildings register
A listed building is one included on lists which are compiled by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport as being of special architectural or historic interest; prior to 1992, listing was carried out by the Department of Environment. Buildings in Blaby District were re-surveyed and new lists have been published since 1986.
There are over 200 listed buildings in the District which represent an important part of the District's architectural heritage. Listed building status is not just limited to houses and other buildings but may also include structures such as walls, gates, railings, war memorials, mile posts and telephone kiosks.
Images of England (external link) is a photographic library of England's listed buildings, recorded at the turn of the 21st century. You can view over 300,000 images of England's built heritage from lamp posts to lavatories, phone boxes to toll booths, mile stones to gravestones, as well as thousands of bridges, historic houses and churches.
Heritage Gateway (external link) is a tool which allows any user to search across national and local records of England’s historic sites and buildings. Over 20 local authority Historic Environment Records and several national datasets, including Images of England, data from Listed Buildings Online (external link) and the NMR Excavation Index are available to search through Heritage Gateway. More datasets are being linked to this search as the project progresses.
The council is responsible for considering applications for any alteration, extension or demolition of a listed building which would affect its character as a building of architectural or historic interest. Please contact the Conservation Team before carrying out works to a listed building.
