Welcome to Context One

Looking after the past today...

Context One offers all aspects of heritage work across the South-West. Established in 1997 and based in Dorset, we pride ourselves on having a reputation for experience and expertise; producing high quality reports; innovation; and an attentive professional rapport with our clients.


We can help whether you need advice on a planning proposal or listed building consent; historic building recording; an archaeological evaluation to accompany a development application; or an investigation required as part of planning consent such as archaeological monitoring or excavation.


We have worked for the private and public sectors across the region for over 20 years and our clients include Historic England, English Heritage, County Councils, utility companies, major building contractors and private householders.
