Listing assessments

In 2014 and 2015, AHP undertook pioneering listing assessments of three Roman Catholic dioceses for Historic England, taking forward the recommendations in the Taking Stock reports for the Archdiocese of Southwark, the Diocese of Brentwood and the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. In consultation with Historic England, our assessments of 24 buildings resulted in the listing of three and the upgrading of two buildings in Southwark, the listing of four buildings in Brentwood and the listing of three churches in Arundel & Brighton.

Historic England have described our work as ‘an exemplar for future projects by drawing on external expert advice and speeding up designation assessments’.

For further information, please see pages 77 and 78 of Historic England's Designation Yearbook 2014-15.
