Bournville Memorial Cross, Sycamore Road – Awarded Listed Building Status

The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport has agreed to add Bournville Memorial Cross to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The memorial is now listed at Grade II.

Historic England, the new organisation that has taken over the responsibility for listing historic buildings from English Heritage, had done a detailed analysis of the memorial and made the positive recommendation in light of their First World War Commemoration project.

In their report they stated that ;

"It is considered an elegant example of the lantern cross type of war memorial, in the medieval style. Standing in a prominent position in close proximity to the Grade II-listed 10 and 12 Sycamore Road, it commemorates the local servicemen who died during the First World War. Unusually it has not been modified to commemorate the Second World War, and thus retains its original design intent. Overall, it is considered that the memorial has special architectural and historical interest and meets the criteria for listing."

Listing helps us to mark a building’s significance and celebrate its special architectural and historic interest. It brings specific protection so that its special interest can be properly considered in managing its future.
