Listed Buildings: Conservation & Planning, West Sussex

The importance of the architectural heritage of England can be clearly observed in the root structure of towns and in the rural landscape. This historic architectural footprint forms the core of our towns and villages and reminds us of our past, while inspiring us to maintain them, celebrating the patrimony and bringing them to their former glory. Thus, ancient handcrafts are being kept alive by artisans working in their workshops and on site, maintaining the fabric and structures of the ancient buildings – stonemasons, carpenters, builders, bricklayers, and blacksmiths amongst them.

In inhabiting a historic building, one perceives a feeling of transcendence and the subtle atmosphere that one senses in spaces long since created, the lives lived, and the words said.
