Finding out about historic buildings

Q. Where can I go to find out more about a specific building, type of building or period?
A: Your local record office may have information about historic buildings in your area. The Historic England Archive provides information about the architecture and archaeology of England, including over 12 million photographs of buildings and sites, extensive coverage of the country in air photographs, data on most known archaeological sites, 50,000 measured drawings, and an extensive reference library. Our collections can be searched online at Historic England Archives or in person by visiting our search room in Swindon.
