Caroline Davison BA GradDiplCon (AA) MA IHBC

trained as an historian before completing a graduate diploma in building conservation at the Architectural Association followed by an MA in environmental and heritage interpretation.


She has over 20 years experience of working within the field of historic buildings and landscape conservation, beginning as a documentary researcher on the pioneering Norfolk Historic Farm Buildings Project at the Centre of East Anglian Studies, UEA, before starting a long and varied career at Norfolk County Council. Her first task there was to establish the Buildings at Risk register for Norfolk in 1988. Since then she has led a number of successful, innovative projects aimed at securing the future of significant buildings at risk; increasing understanding of vernacular historic buildings and undesignated landscapes; and encouraging local communities to value them. In recent years Caroline has been a judge for the CPRE Norfolk Awards and the Civic Trust Awards.


Caroline is now operating as a freelance heritage consultant in East Anglia, offering in-depth knowledge and a professional approach to all aspects of historic environment management. Her aim is to provide clients with a flexible and responsive service and she can draw on a wide range of experienced associates to build the right team for your project.

‘...Caroline developed and managed several significant building conservation projects extremely professionally and could be consistently relied upon for the highest quality of conservation advice, clearly and succinctly provided.’
Phil Bennett-Lloyd, Environment Manager, Norfolk County Council


‘...with minimal guidance and advice she rapidly grasped the principles of historic characterisation, and sensitivity assessment, applied it in a very inventive and creative way and came up in double quick time with a contribution to the master-planning that put historic environment / landscape issues as a whole – not just the odd listed building - into the equation. Very impressive – a case study in EH guidance now
Graham Fairclough, Head of Characterisation at English Heritage, 2002-2012
