English Heritage Sash Windows.
Please read through the information below regarding sash windows as published by English heritage.
English Heritage (The historic building monuments commission for England) is a non-departmental public body which manages the historic built environment of England. We can install or renovate sash windows in to listed buildings such as those that are look after or overseen by English Heritage in areas such as Kensington & Chelsea and other London areas. We also cover Surrey, Sussex & Brighton.
The state’s legal responsibility for the historic environment goes back to the Ancient Monuments Protection Act 1882. Central government developed several systems of heritage protection for different types of ‘assets’, introducing listing for buildings after WW2 and conservation areas in the 1960s. In 1983 Secretary of State for the Environment Michael Heseltine gave national responsibility for the historic environment to a semi-autonomous agency (or ‘quango’) to operate under ministerial guidelines and to government policy. The Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission (now known as English Heritage) was formed.
