On behalf of the Historic Environment Forum

Heritage Counts

Heritage Counts is the annual audit of England's heritage, first produced in 2002. It is produced by Historic England on behalf of the Historic Environment Forum (HEF). The Historic Environment Forum is the high level cross-sectoral committee for England, bringing together chief executives and policy officers from public and non-government heritage bodies to co-ordinate initiatives and strengthen advocacy work and communications.

Heritage Counts consists of five separate documents, which are updated annually:

  • Heritage Counts – Annual Research Report
  • Heritage Indicators
  • Historic Environment Overview
  • Heritage and the Economy
  • Heritage and Society

These are also supplemented with regional reports and case studies.
