Identifies the effect of a church listing and notes the origins and legislative effect of the Ecclesiastical Exemption. Explains the workings of the Faculty Jurisdiction and summarizes the major changes introduced by the Care of Churches and Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Measure 1993. Discusses the movement to abolish or reform the Ecclesiastical Exemption which culminated in the introduction of the Ecclesiastical Exemption (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Order 1994.
