Northampton's most unusual listed buildings
Northampton has many listed buildings but there are a handful that would come as a surprise.
A listed building is a building or structure that is included in the National Heritage List for England as being of national architectural or historic importance. The purpose of listing is to protect the special historic character or interest. Listed buildings are protected in law and alterations. It is an offence to undertake work which requires Listed Building Consent without consent having first been obtained. Such action may lead to prosecution and a fine.The listed entries for Northampton can be viewed on line by using the link to the Planning page of the Council’s website at www.northampton.gov.uk The list can also be inspected at the council’s One Stop Shop at The Guildhall and in the Local Studies Room at Central Library, Abington Street.
