Protected ancient monuments
Archaeological sites or historic buildings or structures can be "scheduled" for special protection by the government if they are considered nationally important.

There are six scheduled ancient monuments in Cheltenham:

Historic England carry out a programme of scheduling work, but anyone can nominate a site to be scheduled. In both cases Historic England make a recommendation to the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and they make the final decision as whether a site should be scheduled or not. Find out more about scheduled monuments on the Historic England website.
