Listing[edit]

Thanks for your comment on the DYK suggestions page. I too thought that it was Grade II* listed until I looked more carefully at the Heritage gateway page. At the top it says "Grade II*", and a little lower it says "GVII*". But still lower it says "The entry shall be amended to read:-" and lower again "GVI". In addition Grade I listed buildings in Babergh (where it uses its alternative dedication (maybe incorrectly) to St Lawrence) includes it as Grade I listed. I decided that the evidence is in favour of its grading having been raised from Grade II* to Grade I and have reverted your edit. Cheers. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 10:51, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

That should be good enough for me, but the reference you've given, at the Wikipedia-originated list of Grade I listed buildings in Babergh, also gives Grade II* for this church; the list is as of 2001: here it is. Perhaps the change in listing is relevant to the article. Let me copy this to Talk:All Saints Church, Little Wenham#Listing. --Wetman (talk) 11:20, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I know; it's based on the Images of England site, as you say, which was created as of 2001 and has not been (and will not be) updated. Which is why I and other editors writing on heritage in England use the Heritage Gateway site, which does seem to be updated. The problem with including the upgrading in the article is that I do not have a good-enough reference to confirm this; I have just made a conclusion from what I take to be a reliable source. --Peter I.
