Identifying heritage and protecting it through the listing system is one of Historic England’s key aims.
Over the course of each year we add hundreds of new buildings and sites to the List (officially known as the National Heritage List for England). Below you can see some of the historic treasures protected through the listing system in the last year.
We also respond to applications for listing, scheduling, protection of battlefields and wreck sites and the registration of parks and gardens from concerned members of the public and heritage professionals. You can see some of the highlights from these here too.
