Older Buildings in Stratford sub Castle 

There are many Listed buildingsand others of historical interest in the village. The website has articles about each of the buildings shown below and images with brief details of many more. 

The general principles are that all buildings built before 1700 which survive in anything like their original condition are likely to be Listed, as are most buildings built between 1700 and 1850. Particularly careful selection is required for buildings from the period after 1945. Source Historic England
