Protecting the Past
Heritage Watch is a scheme which aims to help fight crime
and anti-social behaviour at the county’s heritage sites by
improving communication between people who live near historical
sites, those who take a keen interest in the county’s heritage and
People who live close to historical
sites and those who have a real interest in our local history tend
to frequent the county’s areas of historical interest more often
and are therefore likely to notice anything suspicious or out of
the ordinary in these areas.
