Hunslet remembered
A listed building is one that is of special architectural or historic interest and has been included on a list kept by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. The list identifies our heritage and puts a mark against those buildings that are thought to be special. Listing means that changes to a building are under strict control through the planning system.

Leeds has about 3,300 listed buildings. Today not much remains of old Hunslet and in spite of its long and illustrious industrial history it hasn't many listed buildings.
