Humble Heritage was established by Liz Humble,

a senior heritage consultant with over twelve years professional experience.

Our expertise covers a wide range of projects and building types.

We listen closely to our clients and work with them at all stages in order to achieve a successful outcome and deliver projects to time and to budget.



The practical benefits that Humble Heritage can bring to a project include:

Informing and supporting projects at important stages, for example applications for planning permission, consents and church faculties and grant aid.

Providing an informed approach to repairs, alterations and maintenance, by understanding construction phases, use of materials and historical development.


Unlocking the development potential of historic places, providing an understanding of the historical development, significance and issues affecting historic sites is a key part of supporting positive managed change including development or regeneration.


Satisfying requirements set out as part of planning / listed building applications or government policy, for instance as set out in the National Planning Policy Framework (2012) Government guidance on the historic environment.

Building consensus between clients and key groups, such as English Heritage, local planning authorities and statutory amenity societies.

Discharging archaeological / built heritage conditions, as part of  planning permission and other consents.


Supporting funding bids to the Heritage Lottery Fund, Architectural Heritage Fund and others.
