Heritage and Society

Heritage plays a significant role in society - enhancing our wellbeing and quality of life, improving the way places are perceived, and engaging the general public.

Our report Heritage and Society 2017 is produced each year by Historic England on behalf of the Historic Environment Forum (HEF). The objective of this document is to provide bite-sized facts and figures that demonstrate the importance of heritage to society. These are based on detailed technical reports that are fully referenced for anyone requiring further information. These facts can be extracted and used by anyone who seeks to understand and evidence the social values of heritage in order to make the case for heritage.
