Survey Sites
Between 1994 and 1999 English Heritage carried out a programme of county-based surveys of Historic Designed Landscapes in partnership with local authorities and other locally-based organisations in order to identify  sites of historic and special interest.  Ed. Bennis and J. Dyke from Manchester Metropolitan University School of Landscape produced the Lancashire survey in 1998: 
Judith Roberts and Edna Currie produced the Greater Manchester survey in 1988  and  Christopher Gallagher the Merseyside Report in 1994.  In all over 930 parks and gardens have been identified, and Lancashire Gardens Trust aims to survey and research these sites in more detail, including those which have already been wholly or partly 'lost',  so that they can be fully recorded and information made available.

Send us your recent or old photographs of parks and gardens on the lists so that we can put them onto the web.  

Can you remember visiting them in their 'heyday'  - send us your memories.

Do you belong to a 'friends of' group -  let us know.

Do you own or have an interest in one of the survey sites please contact us for more information.

Registered Sites
Since the 1980s, English Heritage have established and maintained a national record of the historic parks and gardens which they consider make the greatest contribution to our landscape - the Register of Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England.  It now contains over 1600 sites countrywide and 78 of these are within Lancashire. These sites together with information about other heritage 'assets' can be found at English Heritage's new online database  www.heritagegateway.org.uk
