A scheduled monument is a site that’s legally protected because of its historical importance.
Scheduled monuments might be:
- archaeological sites, such as ancient burial mounds
- more recent remains, such as from the coal industry or World War 2
You need written permission from your regional English Heritage office to carry out work on a scheduled monument. You may also need planning permission from your council.
Grants for scheduled monuments
You may be able to get an English Heritage grant to help maintain or repair a scheduled monument.
