Scheduled Monuments


 Scheduled monuments are nationally important archaeological sites or historic buildings which have protection against unauthorised change. The list is in fact a register compiled by Historic England, but the final decision whether or not to schedule something is taken by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. The purpose of the scheduling is to ensure that the character and special interest of the sites or monuments are preserved. Scheduled monuments enjoy special protected status under planning law.

There are 35 scheduled monuments in the district ranging from the earthworks of a Norman castle to Second World War fortifications to the site of a Roman villa. The National Heritage List for England is an online database of all heritage assets including scheduled monuments.
