English Heritage is the guardian of a remarkable range of data, photographs and other archive items related to the historic environment, previously managed as the National Monuments Record (NMR). One of the most important developments in recent years is the online facilities we have been developing to give you round-the-clock access to them.
To better reflect the services we now offer, the name National Monuments Record (NMR) will no longer be used. From now on, our archive, comprising around 12 million items relating to England's historic environment, will be called the English Heritage Archive. This will continue to be housed and curated in Swindon where we have a Public Search Room (open Tuesday - Friday, 9.30am - 5.00pm).
- You can search our online catalogue. This includes photographs dating from the 1850s to the present day, as well as reports, drawings, and plans of English buildings and archaeological sites. You can already view 93,000 images here, free of charge. By 2015 we aim to add 500,000 more.
- For aerial photographs and spatial data, please contact the Archive Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- For listing information and local historic environment records, we encourage you to go to the Heritage Gateway. This is a portal to 49 resources, including over 50% of local English Historic Environment Records, the National Heritage List for England (all nationally designated assets), and 6 other national resources including Images of England.
If you can't find what you need, please don't hesitate to email us at email@example.com. We will try our best to help.
