SK6706 : White House Farmhouse, Main Street, Keyham

taken 5 months ago, near to Keyham, Leicestershire, Great Britain

White House Farmhouse, Main Street, Keyham
White House Farmhouse, Main Street, Keyham
Dated 1675 just below the near window, some timber framing remaining at the far end. Listed Grade II.
Some confusion with this as when I took this, the location given was for the White House Farm on the road between Keyham and Ingarsby, and a thought that this building was not Listed. Only afterwards when I checked, I found that the description matches this house. I suspect that the farming side was moved from the village to the countryside for convenience, but the name was retained, and then found on the map when the Listing was prepared. The new farm only dates from the latter end of the 20th century.
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%)
