Grade II listed 12 Old Street, Ludlow
Now the premises of Trevor Lloyd, bookbinding and restoration, 12 Old Street was built in the 18th century. The shop front is a 20th century addition.

In 1742, 12 Old Street was listed as the Golden Lion, and was one of the town's leading coaching inns,
a role it maintained throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. It was from this inn that the last coach departed for Birmingham before the coming of the railways. From the 1840s onwards the premises were the venue for many auctions. By 1926 the inn had become a Temperance Hotel. In the 1930s its usage changed again, to a cycle shop. C1970 some of the building was sold off and became the public library. From 1980 onwards it was an antiques shop.

Grade II listed in October 1969. Its colourful neighbour on the left LinkExternal link is also Grade II listed.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
