Depends on the period of course, but something like this perhaps: http://www.castironairbricks.co.uk/conservation.htm ?

I've also seen some round cast-iron air bricks sized to fit over 100mm ducting from one of the local foundries (but I don't think they're on-line).

Generally minor works such as bathroom/toilet and kitchen extract fans do not need consent, the only requirement is that all features are respected and any damaged finishes are restored. What does the local planning (listed buildings) officer say???

Just a thought...

In cases like this:

I find it easier, quicker, and with no room for it getting 'lost in translation', to phone planning/etc departments myself and get it straight from the horses' mouth.

I can fully understand the reluctance of owners and even some of our officers when dealing with listed buildings not to spoil the 'look' as stack pipes out of the roof or white vents stuck on the wall do look markedly ugly at the best of times, there is now becoming more of a solution to this problem as HRV systems are becoming popular and that is the ridge vent with an attachment for a soil or flexi pipe, they come in various tile styles and dont look out of place even on a listed building.

Failing that run your fan into a filter box situated in the loft, expensive and only really designed where there is no access to outside.

regards
