listed building

listed buildings in England are graded at three levels, from the higher Grade I to Grade II* and the lower Grade II. Everyone can nominate buildings, but it is the Secretary of State that gives the final approval, advised by Historic England. The latter also maintains the List that gathers a file for each listed building.
