Industrial Mysteries

Industry changed the face of England, but many industrial buildings have been lost or forgotten. Our photo archive provides plenty of evidence for how these places once looked. But some of these views are difficult to trace. Perhaps you can help identfy them.  

If you can identify any of the places in the gallery below, or spot a clue that might help our cataloguers, please contact us with the details via email: canyouhelp@HistoricEngland.org.uk.
