Our Built Environment refers to the dwellings and other man-made structures that provide the setting for human activity. In the parish of East Worlington there are 36 buildings and structures that are Listed, 32 being Grade II listed, 3 being Grade II* Listed and one (St Mary’s Church West Worlington) that is Grade 1 Listed. The listings included dwellings, farm buildings, churches, Affeton Castle, a war memorial and a bridge.
One of the outcomes of the Heritage Project is to describe the evolution and development of the parish over the centuries. To support this outcome we would like understand better the development of dwellings within the parish, including their type of construction, their use over time (if there has been a change in use), their specific developments, alterations and extensions, any historical information about previous residents, and any artefacts, photographs, etc. that may exist.
