Listed buildings in Cambridge

All photographs on this website have been taken by me, Jo Edkins. Anyone may use them for their own use, or for educational use. Contact me for any other use.

I have based the website on the British Listed Buildings website. This contains the actual listing descriptions, and maps. Click here for all listed buildings in Cambridgeshire. This website only covers Cambridge.

Please note that I am only photographing buildings visible from public roads or paths. This means that the colleges will be under-represented. There are also private houses hidden by hedges or trees. Occasionally I have managed to photo through a gate or archway which may not always be open.

I have tried to be accurate, but I cannot guarantee the accuracy. I may have made mistakes, or mis-identified a building. I have tried to double-check a building from the listing, but sometimes it's hard. So, please do not take this website as authoratitive!

Grade I and II*

Grade I listed buildings are of the highest interest, followed by grade II*. So I have a page for each, organised roughly by area. The third grade is grade II, and those are covered by the rest of this website.

Groups of streets by ward

All grades of listed buildings are included below, apart from the ones that cannot be seen from a public road. There is a photo for each, which you can click on to see a large photo. There is also a link to the listed buildings webpage for that building, including the listing and a map showing where it is. The British Listed Buildings website is organised by ward - a political division used to elect councillors. However, sometimes the ward boundary goes down the middle of a road, ward boundaries change from time to time, and in fact some of the listed buildings have ended up in the wrong ward! So I have put all listed buildings on a street together (even if they are in different wards). Some wards have many listed buildings, so I have sub-divided them. A page may contain several streets, or a single street, depending on how many buildings are there.
