Making the grade

The Humber Bridge has been given Grade I listed status - becoming one of only six structures built in England since 1961 to be afforded the honour.

Constructed between 1973 and 1981, the recognition by the Department for Culture on the advice of Historic England designates the bridge as being of "exceptional interest".

Only 2.5% of England's 500,000 listed buildings and structures are Grade I.

So what are the most-recently built structures that find themselves in the same league as St Paul's Cathedral, Hadrian's Wall, Chatsworth House - and now the Humber Bridge?
