The Heritage List

Nearly 400,000 of the most important historic places in England are listed. The List includes buildings, battlefields, monuments, parks, gardens, shipwrecks and more. Listing makes sure their value is protected.

More is More

Post-Modern architecture emerged in the 1970s as a critical reaction to Modernism. The style was an important strand of late 20th century architecture, but Post-Modern buildings can be vulnerable to change and loss which is why the best examples have been selected for listing.

Suffragettes in the dock at Bow Street Court, London. Some of the best-known trials of suffragettes took place at Bow Street Court in the decade before the First World War. Most of the offences by Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) members were low-level so would be tried in London’s magistrates’ courts, including Bow Street. In 1908 the WSPU produced a leaflet that urged readers to ‘help the suffragettes to rush the House of Commons’ on 13 October. Its leaders, Emmeline Pankhurst, Christabel Pankhurst and Flora Drummond, were arrested and tried at Bow Street. A press photographer known to the WSPU took covert pictures of the trial showing the three defendants in the dock.
