来源:BBC英语教学 发布时间:2019-03-14

  位于英格兰的二十处独特建筑物2018年被英格兰历史建筑暨遗迹委员会(简称“英格兰遗产委员会”)列入了“受保护历史建筑”的名单中。英格兰遗产委员会说2017年共有1041个历史遗址被加入此名单中。这项特殊的保护意味着这些建筑或遗址不得被扩建或拆毁。接下来就做一做相关报道的雅思阅读测验吧。

  原文

  From Whipsnade Tree Cathedral in Dunstable to a working men's club in Eastbourne. From the old milestone markers on the B4073 in Gloucestershire to the gravestone of Blackie the warhorse on Merseyside, it is an eclectic list of the listed: Historic England's selection of the most intriguing sites registered in 2017.

  Possibly the most striking structure on the list is a Victorian gas tower off the Old Kent Road in London. When it was built in 1881 it was the biggest in the world. Its wrought iron frame has been dominating the skyline ever since. And like all the sites listed in 2017, it won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
