KDBH Interactive Map

Welcome to the newest area of our website! A place to showcase what makes our Neighbourhood Area so special in terms of heritage and environment.   

Who knew there's such a wealth of information already created by those who know so much about our Area?  Our aim is, by signposting residents to this information and making it more accessible, to help bring it alive and encourage us all to learn more about the place we proudly call home.  To start with, we've focused on four aspects, all of which we will continue to develop, including:

KDBH HE Listed Buildings

See details of all the buildings in KDBH listed by Historic England (HE).  Learn more about listed buildings at: Historic England 

KDBH Heritage Assets

Heritage Assets are of local historic or architectural interest.  More information at SMBC: Local List of Heritage Assets

Local Green Spaces

Displays the highly valued and protected Green Spaces in KDBH, which have increased through the development of the Neighbourhood Plan.

Walks in and Around Our Area

Two walks are included as examples of what will develop over time. We will be adding: a printable copy of the walks; more links to other sites with walks.
