Historic parks and gardens
Parks and gardens of special historic interest are registered by English Heritage in a similar way to buildings of architectural or historic interest.
There are three parks and gardens of special historic interest in the Forest of Dean district:
- Clearwell Castle, Grade II
- Flaxley Abbey, Grade I

Development is not permitted that adversely affects the character, setting, amenities, historical context or views within, into or from a park or garden of historic interest. Applications involving a park or garden of historic interest need consultation with English Heritage.
