English Heritage York office has worked with the residents of Cawood to help develop capacity within the community in order for them to take greater control of the management of the scheduled monument at the centre of the village. The early interest in the scheduled monument has generated additional activities around the village but has also resulted in improved access, interpretation and management on the garth. Other cultural activities include building recording, field-walking, oral history, an annual heritage festival, historical research into numerous periods and fruit tree/orchard surveys.
