What listed buildings are there in Aylesbury Vale?
There are about 2900 listed buildings in the Vale. A listed building is acknowledged by the Secretary of State to be of special architectural or historic interest.
The word building is used very generally and includes buildings such as houses, churches, schools and barns, but also includes items such as walls, tomb stones, milestones, ice houses, bridges and locks, telephone and post boxes.
The responsibility for deciding which buildings have special architectural or historic interest falls to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, who has a statutory duty to produce a “list” of such buildings, known as Greenbacks.
