Group Rules

Qualifying Buildings

Pictures of buildings in England which are:

* Mentioned in the official description of a cultural UNESCO World
Heritage Site (inc tentative, and former tentative),

* Grade I listed buildings,

* Significant Structural Scheduled Ancient Monuments,

* Grade II* listed buildings.


NOT allowed:

* Grade II listed buildings and unlisted buildings.


Purpose of Group

* We are seeking good photographs of ALL the buildings in the first two categories above, and of the English Heritage-maintained Scheduled Ancient Monuments.

* There are county lists to help - linked from the homepage.

* We are NOT methodically seeking out all Grade II* buildings or Scheduled Ancient Monuments.

* There are no style rules: any photo which captures the essence of the building is welcome.

* More than one photograph of the same place is not a problem, so long as it adds something.

* The project has been successful in its own right and may spawn side projects. Members' copyright will be respected, and blogs etc will be published in the discussion threads.


Tags and Descriptions

* Including the justification for inclusion of the building is strongly encouraged, particularly for buildings which are not Grade I.

* Various one-click searches are available from the homepage and discussion threads, and more will be added.

* To facilitate searching, titling or tagging including name of building, type of building (see discussion thread for standard list), location, county, and the listed building number or National Heritage list number are encouraged.

* Descriptions, history snippets and links to information are encouraged.

* Tagging "EBB" is optional.


Grey Areas

* The draft Heritage Bill published by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport in July 2008 contains proposals to bring Scheduled Ancient Monuments into the same grading system used for Listed Buildings. Until then, it's a judgement call.

* Monuments listed at Grade II are not allowed.

* There is an exception to the rule on Grade II listed buildings ONLY if they are explicitly mentioned in the official description of a UNESCO World Heritage Site (including tentatives) and are judged essential to the listing.
