Parkgate is proud to have in its area a large number of listed and other historic buildings. One of the first achievements of the Parkgate Society was to get the historic central area of Parkgate designated as a conservation area in 1973. As such, the Society keeps a watchful eye on its stock of buildings to ensure that they are protected and are maintained to an adequate standard. We have been asked by Historic England (formally English Heritage) to voluntarily perform periodic inspections of our listed buildings and to report back to them on the state of the buildings. We also keep an eye on local planning applications and make relevant representations to the Planning Authorities should we feel that any of our historic buildings are under threat.
Below is a list of those buildings that make up the heritage of Parkgate; those that have Grade II* and Grade II listings, as well as other buildings with historic backgrounds. The full description of what entitles a building to be listed, according to Historic England, can be found here. The buildings highlighted in gold have a bronze plaque attached briefly describing that building's history. These buildings are included in our Heritage Trail booklet.
