Listed Buildings in Sonning and Sonning Eye

A DRAFT list (shown on the left) has been compiled by members of the Society to enable residents and visitors to identify important buildings in the two villages. There are key works here by Arts & Crafts architects, Sir Edwin Lutyens (Deanery Garden, 1901) and Halsey Ricardo (The Eyot House, 1905), as well as several restorations or new buildings by Victorian architect, Henry Woodyer. In addition to the restored mediaeval church, the villages also have some fine buildings dating from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Note: This list is a working draft as at October 2004, so please treat with caution.

What is a listed building?

Listed building are those recommended by English Heritage for inclusion on statutory lists compiled by the Secretary of State for Culture Media and Sport. Listing ensures that the architectural and historic interest of the building is carefully considered before any alterations, either outside or inside, are agreed.

What do the Grades mean?

Grade I buildings are of exceptional interest
Grade II* are particularly important buildings of more than special interest
Grade II are of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve them

All the buildings on this list are Grade II unless otherwise indicated. Wherever possible current building names are used. (P) indicates a restoration or alteration by Sidney Paddick, a 20th-century builder who lived in Sonning for over 60 years. Paddick and his firm were responsible for much of the newer developments in Pound Lane, and on the south side of the Bath Road. The information is taken from Paddick’s privately published, Memoirs of a Nonagenarian, (1981).
