CHESHIRE groups are being urged to take part in English Heritage’s first national survey of the UK’s most special places.

The results will be announced and a campaign launched on June 23 to help councils, communities and residents care for them.

Dr Simon Thurley, chief executive of English Heritage, said: “We will be analysing the results carefully so we can help provide answers to questions and propose solutions where conservation areas are in decline.”

He asked local societies and residents’ groups to also get involved, and wants to hear success stories involving local heritage sites.
