Everybody makes history. We each have our personal heritage. Everyone can have a part in enjoying, understanding and caring for England's shared heritage.
As a nation, we have a very long tradition of diversity. The heritage of different cultures has been woven into our shared history over hundreds of years, through migration, trade, conquest and alliances. Many of the historic properties in this country can tell fascinating stories of international importance.
These sites tell of the contribution of millions of people from all walks of life to the built heritage that surrounds us and enhances our lives. Just as we have built the world that surrounds us, in many ways, it has built us and the historic environment plays a major part in our sense of identity. We believe that as many people as possible should help to hand on the heritage that matters to them.
People care passionately about their own heritage and their neighbourhood landmarks, streets, parks and houses.
We understand we have some way to travel until we fully reach these goals, but the following pages will show you some of the things we are doing to get us moving along the way:
- The Social Inclusion and Diversity Team
- Bicentenary of the Abolition of the Transatlantic Slave Trade
- Witley Court Natural Heritage Project
- Equalities Impact Assessment
- Access audits for all EH sites
- Religion and Place: multifaith projects in Leeds, Liverpool and Hackney
