Listed Buildings on Google Maps

In the UK buildings that are deemed to have a special historical, archaeological, architectural or artistic interest can be given 'listed building' protection. The listing is designed to protect important buildings which may not be demolished, extended, or altered without special permission.

British Listed Buildings has created a Google Map that can help the public find the location of these important buildings. The colour of each marker relates to the grade of each listed building (grade 1,2 or 3). If you want to know more about an individual building displayed on the map you can click on the 'more information' link in each information window to view the dedicated entry for the building.
