Heritage & Pre-Planning

Historic Buildings

Some of the most readily recognisable elements of our rich heritage are historic buildings and structures. From the lowly milestone to the grand castle or stately home, most of our important historic structures are protected as Listed Buildings or as important components within Conservation Areas.

Although often highly visible, the archaeological and historical value may not always be apparent. Cotswold Archaeology has extensive experience in investigating and assessing the significance of historic buildings, monuments and especially their settings. Whether the project is in the earliest stages of design and development or is already underway on site, our in-house expertise and bespoke service offerings can aid your understanding of significance, assist with the planning implications, and advise on gaining maximum benefit from any heritage value.

Early identification of any form of heritage asset will greatly assist the planning of your project, helping you better understand the constraints and opportunities afforded by historic buildings and their settings.
