Listed Buildings In Bures Hamlet

Within the three parishes of Bures St Mary, Bures Hamlet and Mount Bures, there are 116 Listed Buildings

What is a listed building?
A 'Listed Building' is a building of 'special architectural or historic interest', on a statutory list compiled by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. Listed buildings enjoy special protected status under planning law. Buildings are chosen to be listed to enable us to preserve our built heritage.

There are three categories of listed buildings:

Grade I buildings are of exceptional interest
Buildings of national importance including both outstanding grand buildings and the fine, little altered example of some important style or date.

Grade II*, particularly important buildings
Buildings that might have merited Grade 1 status but for relatively minor detracting features such as impurities of design, or lower quality additions or alterations. Also buildings that stand out above the general mass of grade Grad II buildings because of exceptional interiors or some other features.

Grade II buildings are of special importance

Buildings of local importance or good examples of some period of style. Some degree of alteration or imperfection may be acceptable.

The current criteria for Listing means that the buildings selected are in one of the following categories:-

(a) Those built before 1700 which survive in anything like their original condition.
(b) Most (but not all) buildings built between 1700 and 1840.
(c) Buildings of definite quality built between 1840 and 1914 including, in particular, the principal works of the principal Architects of the time.
(d) A few buildings built after 1914 but more than 30 years old

These buildings in the village were classified as "Listed" in 2003
