The inspiration behind this website came from the realistion that there isn't a simple, UK-wide database of listed buildings that's accessible via the Internet. Responsibility for listed buildings is devolved to the constituent nations of the UK, and hence there are separate lists - and separate methods of acessing the lists - for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. And not only are there separate interfaces to the lists, but they vary in how user-friendly they are.
This website, therefore, is an attempt to address those issues, at least for the three countries which make up Great Britain (for a variety of reasons, listed buildings from Northern Ireland aren't included here). To the best of my knowledge, every listed building in England, Scotland and Wales (other than those listed very recently) is in the BLB database, and they are all accessible via a single interface that's designed to be as user-friendly as possible.
