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 the Environment. The list puts a mark against those buildings that are thought to be special.
Go to Historic England: Thurrock for details of individual listed buildings. Use their 'View on map' option to zoom in on local towns and villages.
Thurrock's listed buildings include a wide variety of structures such as:
- farm houses
- dove cotes
- public houses
- residential properties
- a cinema
- a railway station
- a powder magazine
- a clock tower
- a tomb

- Grade I - buildings of exceptional interest - there are 13 Grade I listed buildings in Thurrock
- Grade II* (known as Grade 2 starred) - buildings of more than special interest, often with fine interiors - there are 19 Grade II* listed buildings in Thurrock
- Grade II - buildings of special interest - there are 212 Grade II listed buildings in Thurrock
