ⓘ Scheduled monuments in Somerset

There are over 670 scheduled monuments in the ceremonial county of Somerset in South West England. The county consists of a non-metropolitan county, administered by Somerset County Council, which is divided into five districts, and two unitary authorities. The districts of Somerset are West Somerset, South Somerset, Taunton Deane, Mendip and Sedgemoor. The two administratively independent unitary authorities, which were established on 1 April 1996 following the breakup of the county of Avon, are North Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset. These unitary authorities include areas that were once part of Somerset before the creation of Avon in 1974.

The monument is a nationally important archaeological site or monument given legal protection by being placed on a watch list or "schedule", the Secretary of state for culture, media and sport, English heritage takes a leading role in identifying such sites. The current legislation is the ancient monuments and archaeological act 1979 excavations. The term "monument" can be applied to a number of archaeological sites, and they are not always visible. The sites were deliberately constructed as a result of human activities. They range from prehistoric stones and tombs, through Roman ruins and medieval buildings such as castles and monasteries, to later structures such as industrial facilities and buildings, built for the world war or the cold war.
