This report presents results from a return-on-investment (ROI) model developed to explore ways in which historic environment values can be incorporated into the four categories of ecosystem services. The model is based on identifying and monetising the benefit flows from ecosystem services provided by dry stone walls in the Peak District National Park (PDNP). The overall project aims involved: development of a methodology for recording the public and environmental benefits (goods and services)flowing from dry stone walls in the PDNP; identification of those benefits in a way that is compatible with the language associated with ‘ecosystem services’ and ‘natural capital’; attribution of value (economic and non- economic) to those benefits (services); and, to recommend other heritage assets for which this approach would be suitable.
