Searching heritage sites in Devon by night


It appears that a police officer apprehended an individual searching the Castle Green by torchlight at Plympton St Maurice in Devon. The site is recorded by English Heritage as follows "This garden or other land is registered under the Historic Buildings and Ancient Monuments Act 1953 within the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens by English Heritage for its special historic interest."

Is there a need to renew the debate about the need to protect heritage sites in England?

I am grateful to Paul Barford for drawing my attention to the incident.

"Renew" the debate ?

I am not convinced that in England and Wales there has actually been anything remotely resembling a debate on this for the last decade and a half.

The public-funded 'outreach' Portable Antiquities Scheme that should be in the forefront of such a discussion studiously avoids addressing any issues raised.
