About the Edition

Edition Notes

A complete list of Grade 1 and grade A listed buildings in England Wales and Scotland. The information was extracted from the statutory list of buildings of architectural and historic importance up to the year of 1977 when the book went to press. It is a catalogue of all the finest buildings at that time. The list was, however, in the process of revision, and the list is significant for its omission of many fine Victorian buildings and the publication also revealed inconsistencies in the listing process. For example, all the sides of each quadrangle in an Oxford College were listed as a seperate grade one building, while at Blickling hall in Norfolk, the Hall, Orangery, Temple and Mausoleum were listed as one item. One bridge was found to be grade one to the middle and grade two star on the other side! The County boundary ran through the middle of the river! It proved difficult to include grade A churches in England in the then new county lists, and are given by diocese. Despite the recent updating of the statutory list, the book is still relevant, if only for drawing attention to many amazing buildings found where you would least expect them.
