The world's first pre-stressed concrete railway bridge and a 1960s library have this week been given listed building status. The Adam Viaduct in Wigan, completed in 1946, and north London's Hornsey Library of 1965 are now Grade II listed buildings. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has also announced a 12-week consultation period on a proposal to list St Paul's church in Southwark, London. The church was completed by Woodroffe, Buchanan and Coulter in 1960.
