Tree Preservation Orders
As at 2015 there were only three Tree Preservation Orders within the parish, none of which are in the main body of the village.
There are also Ancient Trees within the parish, some in the QE2 Field and others nearby.
Kington St Michael Phonebox
In July 2007 the Parish Council heard from English Heritage that, following the PC's application, the Secretary of State has decided to list our one and only telephone box (Grade II). The listing took effect immediately and means that it is protected against unauthorised demolition, alteration or extension. There are now over 25 listed kiosks in North Wiltshire District with over 65 in total in the whole of Wiltshire. All are the K6 model with similar list descriptions, which do not generally differentiate between the pre-1952 structures and the post-1952 structures. Kington St Michael's appears to be post 1952 based on the crown. Nationally, over 2258 kiosks are listed and about 2100 of those are K6 type.
