Historic parks and gardens

Historic England maintains the register of parks and gardens of special historic interest. Other locally recognised parks and gardens within Cheshire East have been identified and given appropriate protection under Policy HER 7, 'Non-designated heritage assets'.

The majority of registered parks and gardens are identified in the Parks and Gardens of the Cheshire Peaks and Plains: Guide and Gazetteer (1986, Ian C Laurie).
