About National Trust Heritage Records Online

Welcome to our Heritage Records Online website, the easy way to discover more about the archaeology cared for by the National Trust.

This website has been developed to promote, and provide access to, the National Trust’s archaeological and historic building database, a resource which holds information on almost 80,000 archaeological sites and historic buildings situated upon, or adjacent to, National Trust owned land. The type of features recorded on the database can vary widely and can include records for standing buildings, earthworks, buried archaeology, historic garden and parkland features and archaeological landscapes.

Please note: the information shown on this website is from an ever-evolving National Trust database. As such, some of the records may contain inaccurate and out-of-date information.

The National Trust is a charity and completely independent of Government. We rely for income on membership fees, donations and legacies, and money raised from commercial operations. We are supported by 4.2 million members and over 60,000 volunteers without whom we simply could not manage. We protect and open to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments. But it doesn't stop there. We also look after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves, villages - protecting special places for ever, for everyone.
