Military Sites Post-1500

Scheduling Selection Guide

This selection guide offers an overview of military sites and monuments post-dating 1500 which are likely to be deemed to have national importance, and for which scheduling may be appropriate. It aims to do two things: to set these within their historical context, and to give an introduction to the designation approaches employed.

The category of military sites and structures is a particularly broad one, and overlaps are inevitable with other selection guides. A complementary scheduling selection guide, Pre-1500 Military Sites, deals with earlier sites. Reference should also be made to the Maritime and Naval scheduling selection guide. The Military Structures and Maritime and Naval Buildings listing selection guides cover the types of post-medieval structures where listing is generally the favoured designation.
