Protecting local heritage assets

Kilmersdon Parish Council has been invited to nominate local assets, be they buildings or places, for future protection. Please contact the Parish Clerk if you would like to add your thoughts –

The Local Heritage List helps to protect buildings, sites and structures that local people regard as important – from medieval cottages to unusual postboxes. Somerset residents are being invited to nominate what’s valuable in their community as part of a new project being delivered by the South West Heritage Trust.

Mary Andrews, Local Heritage List Project Manager, said: “Anyone can have a say in deciding what’s valuable to their community by nominating a site. Nominations might feature rare materials or historical connections and could be anything from a factory to a front doorstep, a postbox to a historic landscape. Places where important events took place, or where minority identities are celebrated, are also promising candidates. The key thing is that the site matters to the life and culture of the local community.”
