Wales has a proud tradition of archaeological, civic and conservation societies — formal and informal, large and small, old and new, voluntary, amateur and professional. Cadw is keen to understand the health, composition, activity, support structures and financing of this huge and thriving sector.

From mid February 2014, WCVA will be contacting archaeological groups, civic societies and conservation/preservation groups across Wales and asking them to complete the online Community Heritage Survey 2014.

The Community Heritage Survey 2014 is also available as a Word document, a paper document and in large print format. To obtain copies in any of these formats — or to get further information on the survey — please contact the WCVA by email at, by telephone on 0800 2888 329 or by text message on 07797 805628.
