Heritage Gateway Improvement
In line with HIAS Principle 5: The national overview of records about the historic environment should continue to be delivered online through the Heritage Gateway, Historic England is currently developing a new and better Heritage Gateway.
Replacing the existing Heritage Gateway we are working with our stakeholders to create a more reliable and efficient website by making the best use of modern technologies.
It will be a single, searchable data store that will offer reliable consistent searching across all datasets, and will be accessed through redesigned search pages on the Historic England website.
The Heritage Gateway is the only place where you can search across national and local heritage information datasets to find an overview of England’s historic environment.
- The National Heritage List for England
- National Designation Decisions
- Other national records, eg: Parks and Gardens UK, National Trust HBSMR, Excavation Index and the Church Heritage Record
- Records from local Historic Environment Records (HERs)
Starting in summer 2021, the development work is currently projected to take around two years to complete.
