Registered Parks and Gardens

The Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England is compiled and maintained by English Heritage. 

The Register confers special statutory protection for these sites and gives them a Grade I, II* or II grading like Listed Buildings, reflecting their national historic interest.  Within the Borough the Register includes entries for part of the University of Keele - Keele Hall (PDF 26kb) and Maer Hall Estate (PDF 23kb) , both as Grade II.

Historic Battlefields

The Register of Historic Battlefields in England is compiled and maintained by English Heritage.  The Register is purely advisory and does not confer special statutory protection on the sites nor give them any grading.  The Register identifies a limited number of areas of historical significance where important battles are sufficiently documented to be capable of being located on the ground.  The Battle of Blore Heath 1459, (one of the “Wars of the Roses”), is included in the Register.

Please note Historic England is responsible for Historic Park and Gardens, or you can contact the Borough Council’s Conservation Officer on 01782 742408.
