This post is by way of a share of a post on the Swindon Civic Voice website. It’s a guest post by Swindon Civic Voice member and friend, Martin Newman about Swindon’s list of listed buildings.
There’s an astonishing amount of them! Swindon contains 659 Listed buildings. AND fifty-three Scheduled Monuments and three Registered Parks and Gardens!
‘There are a number of misconceptions about listing, one of which is that all the entries are buildings. Yet, as the example below shows, this milestone on Canal Walk is a listed building. One which you could easily trip over if you weren’t looking where you were going!’
