Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites

Sites of archaeological or historic importance are protected by the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979 and are listed on the National Heritage List for England. This gives them legally protected status.

In order to carry out any work to a scheduled ancient monument or site you will need to apply to Historic England for a Scheduled Monument Consent.
