The childhood homes of former Beatles John Lennon and Paul McCartney, where the pair wrote some of their early songs, will be preserved, the government said Wednesday.
The British government announced Monday it has given protected status to a former workhouse thought to have inspired Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist," a move that should save the building from demolition.
A London zebra-crossing made famous by a Beatles album cover has been listed as a heritage site.
He said the building had been given Grade II status, meaning it can't be demolished and any redevelopment must take account of its "special architectural and historic interest."
