Research and the English Heritage Trust

Historic England supports the work of the English Heritage Trust by providing a variety of research techniques and services to support conservation, improvement and presentation  of the English Heritage National Collection. The main aims of this work are to:

  • Provide a better understanding of the significance of English Heritage properties that may be subject to change through repair or the development of new visitor facilities
  • Provide new information and illustrative material that will contribute to the understanding and presentation of English Heritage sites

The scale of our work varies enormously from providing new photography or  to multi-disciplinary projects involving experts from across Historic England at sites such as:

  • Chester Amphitheatre
  • Chiswick House
  • Wrest Park and
  • Whitby Abbey
