Preserving history and culture

We work to protect the New Forest's rich and varied history and culture.

Preserving history and culture

The New Forest has a unique history; from royal hunting ground to Napoleonic ship building, salt making to World War Two airfields. The jewels in the National Park’s heritage crown are more than 200 scheduled monuments and 600 listed buildings. Use this section to find out about some of our work to record, protect and share this information with people of all ages and interests, as well as how we protect the area’s heritage through the planning system.
