Case studies

In this section VSG share Case Study examples of work carried out by the Visitor Safety Group in a range of environments.

Dalby Forest

This case study explores how leisure activities can be safely accommodated within a working forest.

Wigmore, Herefordshire

An early example of how English Heritage used minimal intervention to allow public access to a remote ‘romantic ruin’.

Skara Brae, Orkney, Scotland

Although in a remote location, Skara Brae’s status as one of the finest-preserved prehistoric villages attracts over 100,000 visitors, many arriving by coach.
The challenge is providing safe access whilst minimising adverse effects on a world heritage asset.
