Bats in Churches

Front cover for Bats in Churches: a management guide

A management guide

This leaflet is to help those who look after church buildings that are used by bats to understand their legal obligations. It will be of help to architects, surveyors, local authority conservation officers, ecologists and Natural England and English Heritage staff and volunteers.

This publication supersedes the previous English Heritage and English Nature document Bats in Churches and brings readers up to date with the current legal protection for both bats and buildings.
