English Heritage to get extra £5 million funding to set up new charitable arm

Culture Secretary Maria Miller has announced a further £5 million funding – on top of the £80 million already committed - to create a new charity arm of English Heritage to manage England’s precious historic sites.

The record government investment in the heritage sector will see a new charitable arm, retaining the name English Heritage, able to manage all of the historic sites, which will remain in public ownership.

Details of proposed changes to English Heritage and the way in which its more than 400 historic properties are managed, conserved and made accessible to the public were unveiled today in a public consultation paper.
