Local Advice in West Midlands


The West Midlands is a diverse, exciting and beautiful place.

It ranges from cities like Birmingham and Coventry, and the industrial landscape around the Ironbridge World Heritage site to the cathedral towns of Lichfield and Hereford and the rural tranquillity of Shropshire.

The West Midlands is home to two World Heritage sites, 1,422 scheduled monuments, 604 Grade I listed buildings, 2,089 Grade II* listed buildings, 150 registered parks and gardens and 770 conservation areas. Kenilworth Castle and Witley Court are among the dozens of properties we care for in this region alone.

The local English Heritage team, based in Birmingham, provide advice and grants to protect and safeguard the historic environment.
