Other 'Heritage Assets' within the High Peak

Historic parks and gardens

Since the 1980s, Historic England has maintained a national record of historic parks and gardens. This record, known as the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England, contains nearly 1,450 sites of national importance.

There are currently three entries within High Peak. These are:

  • Glossop - Howard Park
  • Buxton - Pavilion Gardens (including Serpentine Walks)
  • Buxton - The Slopes


Archaeological remains and sites provide important information on the past. The County Archaeologists provide advice on archaeological matters to the council. The Historic Environment Record (HER) database is the main source of archaeological information for the area, which is now searchable online.

Scheduled Monuments

Nationally important sites and monuments are given legal protection by being placed on a list, or 'schedule'. Historic England is responsible for identifying sites in England that are placed on this schedule. 

Scheduled Monument Consent is needed before any works can be carried out that would affect the monument. This process is dealt with through Historic England and not the council.
