Hampton Hill Farmhouse, or Pasture Farmhouse
Hampton Hill Farmhouse, or Pasture Farmhouse
Rather a contrast to so many of the nearby buildings and industrial units such as SP2082 : Birmingham Motorcycle Museum and SP2082 : Chimney at waste disposal site, Bickenhill. The building of Pasture Farmhouse as seen here dates from 1666 (there is a plaque on the wall around the other side) but is believed to incorporate a structure rather older than that, and was Grade II listed LinkExternal link & LinkExternal link in 1952. It has recently been sensitively refurbished by the owners, who run their business from the barns in the background, and is available for short-term lets/rental, currently listed through the AirBnB operation.
Listed Buildings and Structures

Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
