Conserving Our Built Heritage

A number of ways are used to ensure that historic buildings are protected and conserved for future generations. Listed Buildings have been designated as having special architectural or historic interest and they are maintained on a national list and subject to special regulations on how they can be changed. Where an area of a town or village has an area that is of architectural or historic interest but many of the buildings are not by themselves worthy of being Listed Buildings a Conservation Area can be established.

The map shows that within the Wilsden Parish Council area we have both a number of Listed Buildings and a Conservation Area. You can zoom in or out on the map using the + and – icons and if you click on the individual buildings and then on Listed Buildings you can access information about its history.

More information is given separately on both Listed Buildings and the Conservation Area.
