Cornwall Council’s Local Heritage List Pilot project

Local Listing is the identification of valuable aspects of our past which have local interest. This could be historic buildings, landscapes or objects such as a village pump, an old mining tramway, a Cornish Hedge or a WW2 pillbox, beautiful or striking architecture such as a cottage or bus shelter, or things with value linking them to the community such as the home of a notable person, or historic graffiti. Archaeology can also be identified.  It is a way to identify and learn more about our shared heritage and aspects of our environment which make Cornwall a distinct and valued place.
