Bradmore Church
What can be seen here is basically all that survived the fire of 1705. The church was not rebuilt at that time, but a new nave - described by English Heritage as a "late C19 mission church" was added in the 19th century, filling all the available space between the surrounding properties. Unusually for medieval church building, it only has Grade II Listing.
The Bradmore Fire and aftermath

The village of Bradmore was largely destroyed by a devastating fire in 1705. The local landowner, Sir Thomas Parkyns of neighbouring Bunny, rebuilt much of the village, using his own designs. Fortunately they are less idiosyncratic than his work at his own home, Bunny Hall, with the result that the village has a very coherent visual aspect.

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%)
