What do we mean by heritage?

What do we mean by heritage?

If you need inspiration for your heritage project idea, our team in the Midlands & East has set out to answer: ‘what exactly is heritage?’

Engagement Manager Debbie Cooper discusses what we mean when we talk about heritage, using some fantastic examples of projects in the Midlands & East of England.

We don’t define heritage – we ask you to tell us what is important and what should be protected and preserved.

For us, heritage can be anything from the past that you value and want to pass on to future generations.
