older a build­ing is, the more chance there is that it’s listed. As a gen­eral rule, list­ing ap­plies to all build­ings built be­fore 1700 and to most built be­tween 1700 and 1840.

The vast ma­jor­ity of listed build­ings are Grade II listed, but more im­por­tant ones are Grade II* and the most im­por­tant are Grade I. In Scot­land, cat­e­gories A, B and C are used in­stead of grades. The list­ing ap­plies to the whole ex­te­rior and in­te­rior of the build­ing, and some­times at­tached struc­tures and build­ings as well.
