Historic Environment Overview
2022-23 has been another challenging year for the historic environment sector, which continues to respond and adapt to the longer-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and an uncertain economic landscape.
However, it has not been without interesting opportunities. There is much to celebrate and reflect on from the past year, with the sector providing amazing opportunities for people to learn, experience and benefit from England's historic environment.
The Historic Environment Overview is part of Heritage Counts, the annual audit of England’s heritage first published in 2002.
The Historic Environment Overview has been published as a separate document since 2016. Reports from previous years can be found below.
