Listed buildings and borough history

Listed buildings are buildings of special architectural or historic interest and are listed by the Government in consultation with English Heritage.

Wandsworth has around 500 listed buildings which include a wide range of building types and ages that are considered to be of national importance.

Our listed buildings include:

  • Bridges across the Thames
  • Burial tombs in several cemeteries
  • Many houses
  • Churches
  • Schools and cinemas.

Listed Building Consent is required to carry out works of alteration or demolition to a listed building, both externally and internally. This consent is dealt with by Wandsworth's planning service.
