The expansion of aggregates extraction and transportation over the last 40 years has led to an increase in its impact on historic sites and buildings in England's villages and towns. This project developed a methodology to investigate the impact and provide guidance on ways in which it can be better managed. Through a combination of desk based research, field measurement campaigns and use of geographical information systems the project investigated the impact and range of physical factors such as noise, vibration and dust on the historic environment. This project involved consultation with heritage managers, quarry operators and the public.
