It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, a Conservation Area, part of an Area of Local Landscape Significance and a registered Park and Garden. It is managed by the Creswell Heritage Trust.
The Trust has to look after the land and facilities at Creswell Crags including the caves, cliffs, footpaths, wildlife, landscape and buildings. Health and safety is a major consideration as the caves and cliffs are potentially dangerous places.
