The historic research enabled the compilation of a gazetteer of 40 heritage assets within an approximately 250m radius around each section of the proposed development. Egremont Castle has statutory designations, which is both a Grade I listed building and a scheduled monument, and the medieval core of the town is protected as a conservation are. Six sites are within close proximity to the development, but these are perhaps unlikely to be affected by the works, although there may be a visual impact upon the setting of Wyndham School. A further four sites potentially lie within the proposed development area. Two of those with the development area have been identified by field place-names, so their importance is uncertain. Work carried out within Egremont Park and the area of the medieval town may affect remains relating to the medieval period. although the full extent of the latter is unknown.
