With the history of Alton Towers dating back several centuries, the grounds are registered under the Historic Buildings and Ancient Monuments Act 1953 by English Heritage. This legislation requires the Resort to preserve its buildings of historical interest, with an annual budget allocated towards the Resort’s heritage works as part of its cooperative relationship with Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.
