  English Heritage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
English Heritage is a United Kingdom government body with a broad remit of managing the historic environment of England.
English Heritage has direct ownership over some historic sites and also liaises with private owners of sites that are managed under guardianship arrangements.
It is possible for members of the public to join English Heritage: membership confers benefits (such as free admission to its properties) but does not give the member a say in the running of the organization, which is a direct result of government policy.
