The importance of heritage for the North-East of England is highlighted in the new Heritage Counts [pdf] prepared by Historic England and the Historic Environment Forum (HEF).

Heritage added £536.6 million directly in GVA; this increases to £976.6 million if indirect and induced contributions from heritage are included. Over 9,600 individuals are employed directly in heritage, and including those whose jobs are indirectly linked to heritage that figure stands at 15,700.
