Climate crisis could see UK heritage sites left to erode

Heritage sites in the UK may be permanently altered by climate change, with heritage bosses considering whether to treat erosion as part of their “ongoing story”.






Heritage sites in the UK may be permanently altered by climate change, with heritage bosses considering whether to treat erosion as part of their “ongoing story”.

Extreme rainfall, flooding, heatwaves, high winds, soil subsidence and coastal erosion are all threatening historic sites, including churches, houses, castles and sites of natural significance.

A three-year action plan by English Heritage vows to map climate hazards at all 420 of its sites. The National Trust, the other main body that owns historic sites, says three quarters of its “most important land” is vulnerable.

Six castles identified as being particularly at risk include Cornwall’s Tintagel Castle, part of the legend of King Arthur, and Hampshire’s Hurst Castle, which saw a large section of its sea wall collapse in 2021.
