List of Houses and Buildings of historic interest in Arnside:

A Register of Historical Interests is compiled by communities to protect important historical assets.  In almost every case the asset is something man-made. As well as buildings, this can include archaeological sites and industrial sites, like the quarry at Trowbarrow in Silverdale, where the first tarmac in the world was manufactured. The archive group compiled the following list of buildings that qualify as assets for Arnside and merit a special status of protection.
