SH6075 : Grade II* listed Liverpool Arms Hotel, Beaumaris

taken 5 years ago, near to Beaumaris, Isle of Anglesey/Sir Ynys Mon, Great Britain

Grade II* listed Liverpool Arms Hotel, Beaumaris
Grade II* listed Liverpool Arms Hotel, Beaumaris
Viewed across the A545 Castle Street. Only the staircase survives from the original building here, erected c1700. The construction date of the building seen here is uncertain, though a 3-storey structure is shown on a plan of 1829. The hotel was named in an era when there was much sea trade between Liverpool and Beaumaris. Grade II* listed in 1950.
The smiley face inside the first O of LIVERPOOL was probably drawn by someone from the window above the letter. The O of HOTEL is so far untouched, though also near a window...
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%)
