A village rail station and a Hindu temple are among the latest sites to make Bucks Council's Local Heritage List, which recognises assets and landmarks of particular significance.

Overall, 1,466 assets were added to the list today (June 19) - bringing the total number of designated sites to 2,237.

This comes after the council put out an appeal to the public, resulting in almost 3,500 nominations.

These were then assessed by a team of volunteers.

Among the south Bucks sites to make the Local Heritage List are Amersham railway station, the Benjamin North and Sons Furniture Factory in Piddington and Uchi Murugan Koyil - a Hindu temple in High Wycombe.

Assets are placed on the list if they are deemed to be of historical or cultural value.

This could include anything from churches and houses to public works of art.

Bucks Council's corporate director for planning growth and sustainability, Steve Bambrick, said: "I’m very pleased that we’ve been able to progress our Local Heritage List and adopt a further 1,466 sites today.

"This is thanks to the hard work of our Heritage & Archaeology Team, who have collated and assessed the hundreds of sites nominated by local communities.

"I must also thank the many volunteers who have worked - and continue to work - on this project, bringing their enthusiasm and passion for Buckinghamshire’s historic environment to this project.

"The Local Heritage List will help us protect local heritage assets for future generations to enjoy. For instance, assets on this list will be recognised and considered in any future planning applications."

The list is separate from Historic England's grading system for heritage assets, which has legal force under the Planning and Development Act 2000.
