The Listed Buildings of Hawstead
There are approximately 127 dwellings in Hawstead and 23 of them are listed as Grade 2 by English Heritage. Several other structures (barns etc) are also listed as Grade 2, whilst All Saints Church is listed as Grade 1. The site of the former Hawstead Place is also in the list (plus associated fishponds) as a 'sheduled' item.
You can see the full list by downloading the file below: you can also see more details on the English Heritage website. From the Home Page you can search for "Hawstead". This will return all the Hawstead buildings, plus several others, a few in Sicklesmere, and a few elswhere in the country where 'Hawstead' is in the address.
You can also see photographs of almost all the listed buildings on the "Images of England" website (another English Heritage site). There's no picture of either Hawstead Lodge or Pipers Hall Farm and several of the non-dwelling structures are missing - but interestingly you'll see the Moot Hall, Clacton on Sea. This used to be Mannings Farmhouse, located near to Hawstead Place and was moved in its entirety c1911 to its present site.
