British Listed Buildings

Back in January 2011 I posted on the British Listed Buildings site. Since then information has continued to be added. It may be worthwhile revisiting for the communities of interest for your ancestry.

This is the first time I have seen this site and was amazed at how much there was in it.
The general comments on the different places are not always accurate. For instance, I looked up a parish church in Devon where they say it was remodeled when in fact (and there was a pamphlet explaining this at the church), it suffered a fire and one of my ancestors was the major driving force in the rebuilding. There is a stained glass window where he commemorates his wife and daughter which also is not mentioned in the comments.
Unfortunately there is a general lack of pictures for the places cited but looking at Google Maps, I was able to revisit places I had on my genealogy visit to England and Wales. Since I have photos of parish churches and places of interest, I will be uploading some of mine to the website.
Thank you, John, for bringing this website to our attention again!
