6. Historic parks and gardens
There are many diverse historic parks and gardens which make a vital contribution to the landscape. They're important and much treasured parts of our heritage.
Since the 1980s a national record of such parks has been compiled. It is known as the Register of Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England.
The Register of Parks and Gardens of special historic interest is compiled and maintained by Historic England. They are graded I, II and II* and have formal recognition in the planning system.
For further information visit the Historic England website.
In Stockport there are two registered historic parks and gardens as listed below:
