Loss and Destruction Season

A season of cultural activities and events exploring the issue of lost heritage and the importance of buildings and places to communities.

Throughout 2019 Historic England is looking at why our collective history and heritage is so important to us all, and why it needs to be looked after.

Cultural heritage is a valuable, tangible and authentic link to our past. It allows us to make memories and form identities, and its destruction often strikes at the very heart of communities.
