There are a number of listed buildings in Lancashire. The term "listed building", in the United Kingdom, refers to a building or structure designated as being of special architectural, historical, or cultural significance. They are categorised in three grades: Grade I consists of buildings of outstanding architectural or historical interest, Grade II* includes significant buildings of more than local interest and Grade II consists of buildings of special architectural or historical interest. Buildings in England are listed by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport on recommendations provided by English Heritage, which also determines the grading.[1]

Some listed buildings are looked after by the National Trust or English Heritage while others are in private ownership or administered by trusts.

There are over 5000 listed structures in Lancashire. Although most structures on the lists are buildings, other structures such as bridges, monuments, sculptures, war memorials, milestones and mileposts or telephone kiosks may be listed. In Lancashire 70 structures are classified as Grade I (buildings of outstanding architectural or historic interest) and 256 are classified as Grade II* (particularly significant buildings of more than local interest). The remaining 4901 are classified as Grade II.
