Historic parks and gardens

Parks and Gardens of special historic interest are contained in the “Register of Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England” compiled and maintained by English Heritage. These parks and gardens, which by reason of their historic layout, features and architectural ornaments, are of special interest and an essential part of the nation's heritage. Entries are graded I, II* (II star), or II.

As yet these listed parks and gardens do not have legal protection comparable to that of listed buildings, but we must consult interested expert parties on planning applications affecting them.
