Best resource for researching if a site is protected, or not?

Post by shaggybfc » Wed Mar 07, 2018 1:35 pm

Hi All,
I've seen some interesting features on a lidar map on land near me, that I'd suggest 'could' be historic - maybe Roman. I've had a search on Google to see if it's listed as a scheduled site, but can't seem to find anything. Is there a definitive website that people use that has a zoom function map that tells if it's a known site, and has restrictions?
Thanks Andi

Magic Maps is your best bet http://www.magic.gov.uk/

"The MAGIC website provides authoritative geographic information about the natural environment from across government. The information covers rural, urban, coastal and marine environments across Great Britain. It is presented in an interactive map which can be explored using various mapping tools that are included. Natural England manages the service under the direction of a Steering Group who represent the MAGIC partnership organisations."

Natural England manages the service under the direction of a Steering Group who represent the MAGIC partnership organizations:

The MAGIC partners are:
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Historic England
Natural England
Environment Agency
Forestry Commission
Marine Management Organisation


====================================================

For anybody that has not used it recently it has had a major revamp, so might be worth looking at again.

As above.... add the Land based schemes layer -Statutory Historical (or similar name) and all the Scheduled Ancient monuments turn orange! ::g

This one is good for Cornwall I believe there are others. Shows burial mounds and old quarries and other interesting lumps

Thanks All, Great resource. The area I saw was a know site, it turned orange - I knew it'd be too good to be true,,, back to the lidar maps it is then.

Shame, do you have permission outside of the orange area? That'd be worth a look.
