The lower end of Castle Gate
The lower end of Castle Gate
In interesting range of buildings leading up to the former Corn Exchange, spanning some 300 years. The nearest, with slate roof, are early 18th century, with a fine 1840s shop front; next come a group of 3 timber framed houses of lat 16th/early 17th century date. The pair behind the tree were refronted around 1840, although the rest is older. Next a pair of 2-storey brick houses from around 1760, and finally a pair of late 18th/early 19th century houses, refenestrated in the mid 19th century, presumably to give a more modern appearance. All are Listed Grade II.
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.
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.

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%)
