    What's the difference between Grade I, Grade II, and Grade III? Is there a website that explains the different criteria and treatment of buildings of the differing grades?

    Sorry Folks - My typing Error, its grade II*, not grade III!

    Buildings can be listed because of age, rarity, architectural merit, and method of construction. Occasionally English Heritage selects a building because the building has played a part in the life of a famous person, or as the scene for an important event. An interesting group of buildings - such as a model village or a square - may also be listed.

    The older a building is, the more likely it is to be listed. All buildings built before 1700 which survive in anything like their original condition are listed, as are most built between 1700 and 1840. After that date, the criteria become tighter with time, so that post-1945 buildings have to be exceptionally important to be listed.

    The grades (different in Scotland and Northern Ireland)

    The buildings are graded to show their relative architectural or historic interest:

    Grade I buildings are of exceptional interest

    Grade II* are particularly important buildings of more than special interest

    Grade II are of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve them

    Listing currently protects 500,000 or so buildings, of which the majority - over 90% - are Grade II. Grade I and II* buildings may be eligible for English Heritage grants for urgent major repairs. You are extremely unlikely to get any sort of grant for a Grade II or C listed building.

    A Liverpool club where The Beatles played their first gig has been given Grade II listed building status.

    The Casbah Coffee Club was set up in the home of original Beatles' drummer, Pete Best, after his mother read about beat clubs in London.

    John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison played in the converted coal cellar of the house in West Derby, in August 1959 as The Quarrymen.

    Best soon joined as the drummer and the band became The Silver Beatles.

    The foursome went on to perform there many times until it closed in 1962.

    The club survives in a remarkably well-preserved condition

    The Beatles played a farewell gig at the club in front of 1,500 people.

    The cellar club was preserved and still contains murals and paintings by the band members and Lennon's then wife, Cynthia.

    Culture Minister, David Lammy, awarded the Grade II listed status after a recommendation from English Heritage.

    He said: "It is absolutely right that the club where the group first learnt their craft should be badged as an important part of our heritage, and receive the extra protection from harmful redevelopment that listed building status affords."

    Bob Hawkins, of English Heritage, said: "The basement rooms are historically significant because they represent tangible evidence of The Beatles' formation, their growth in popularity and their enduring cultural influence.

    "The club survives in a remarkably well-preserved condition since its closure in 1962, with wall and ceiling paintings of spiders, dragons, rainbows and stars by original band members along with 1960s musical equipment, amplifiers and original chairs.

    "We know of no other survival like it in Liverpool or indeed anywhere else."

    The original Strawberry Fields building is long gone,

    so the present one won't be listed.
    Don't know about the gates, though.

    The Forum / ABC Cinema has been Listed since 1981, but it doesn't seem

    to be on either of the two lists.

    Default Grade 2 building - any ideas?

    I am an architectural historian, looking at 20th century churches.

    English Heritage list as Grade 2 listed the Third Church of Christ Scientist, Upper Parliament Street. It was listed in 1975. It was built - as the Church of Humanity - by W H Ansell in 1914. It is, according to Multimaps, on the corner of Hope Street and Upper Parliament Street.

    It has a telephone number which is not replying. According to another Christian Scientist church in Manchester, it is no longer operating as a church.

    Question - does anyone have any idea how I might be able to find out who can let me in to see the inside of this important modernist building?

    The Church is closed and was recently sold. Check with Land Registry Office in Birkenhead as to current ownership

    Default Third Church of Christ Scientist

    Thanks for your replies.
    The building is not registered at the Land Registry, which it would be at once as soon as it was sold. That means, if it has been sold, the deal hasn't been done yet!
    I have asked English Heritage if they know anything about it - as it is Grade II, they ought to be informed of any plans.

    Default Third Church of Christ Scientist

    I have just been on to Liverpool council planning department, and there is no planning application lodged relating to the church.

    Which means, if it has been sold, no-one has yet got round to drawing up a detailed development proposal - and I have no way of knowing who bought it!

    Incidentally, I have now discovered its address: 35 Upper Parliament Street, Liverpool L8 7LA.

    Any more snippets, gratefully received.

    Default That church - for sale, it is.

    The Third Church of Christ Scientist on Upper Parliament Street ("Temple of Humanity" as was) is once again on the market. The agent is Dears Brack. However, as the building is listed Grade II, I am not sure whether a change of use to flats will be possible. I will contact the agent to see if I can find out more.

    I have been told there was a great scandal around the time of the end of the building's life as the Temple of Humanity, involving a love triangle and a murder. Anyone got any info? I was told Tom Sleman (sp?) Liverpool folklorist and historian knew more, but I have been unable to track him down. He used to write for the Echo, I think, but seems not to now.

    A HISTORIC building has been saved from demolition at the last minute after being given listed status.

    Conservation officers stepped in at the eleventh hour to save the old Westminster Road police and fire station in Kirkdale from the bulldozers.

    Default 3rd Church of Christ Scientist, Upper Parliament Street

    Just thought an update might be of interest.

    There is, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, a "For Sale" sign back up at the Third Church of Christ Scientist in Upper Parliament Street. The agent is Dears Brack. I called them in the week of 15 October, and they said they had had 'a couple of expressions of interest.' As the building is Grade II listed, I am not too sure what any developer will be able to do to the rather striking and uncompromisingly 'Modernist' interior.

    By the way, I attended a rather beautiful and interesting service at the church on 2 September, and was warmly welcomed by the congregation. Like many churches they are finding numbers dwindling, and the building - which has extensive rooms in the basement as well as the church proper - is way too big for them.

    Thanks to everyone who has offered ideas and help, especially scouserdave, who unearthed stuff on the "Positivist Tragedy".

    If a building is listed is there anyway it can become unlisted? What if a building is bought but left abandoned? I'd hate to see beautiful buidings pulled down and flats built upon the grounds

    Yes, it's called "delisting", and has happened numerous times to Liverpool buildings, which have then been demolished after being declared "Dangerous Structures".
