Information is held on the number of listings, rather than the number of buildings, as a listing may include groups of buildings. Information is not held on Grade III listed buildings as the classification was rendered obsolete in 1970. To clarify, the grades are defined as follows:

Grade I buildings are those of exceptional interest;

Grade II1 are particularly important buildings of more than special interest;

Grade II are of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve them.
