This will be assessed against local characteristics and the wider context.
Buckinghamshire has a number of important archaeological monuments and buildings which have not been designated by Historic England, but which are none the less highly significant. Examples include a Bronze Age barrow cemetery in Marlow, World War I practice trenches in Medmenham, and nationally-important medieval ridge and furrow earthworks in Aylesbury Vale.
Equally some asset types such as Rothschild buildings are uniquely common in Buckinghamshire and contribute to local character and narratives.
- To the best of your knowledge is the building or site a rare surviving or relatively unaltered example of its type?
- Is the asset unusual and important, locally, nationally or internationally?
- If the building or site is a common feature of the local area, does it contribute to a strong sense of local character and place?
