Lancashire's built heritage includes historic buildings of many sizes, periods and types, ranging from the humblest barn to the grandest mansion. This remarkable richness and variety reflects the distinctive aspects of the county's history and contributes to the economic life of the county, and the quality of life enjoyed today by residents and visitors alike.
We here provide further analysis on heritage at risk and listings of historic buildings; organisations involved in conservation and regeneration; a variety of other heritage lists; Lancashire museums, historic houses and art purchases; and the heritage, identity and place results from the Royal Society of Arts.
