Historic England

Forged, ploughed, painted, and built – England’s historic environment is unique, incredible and irreplaceable. Whether a place is listed or long forgotten, our rich and varied history helps characterise our landscape and supports our sense of belonging.

Historic England helps protect and champion our heritage. We cherish both the everyday gems and the famous treasures. Photographing these places and moments in time helps provide an important record of our distinctive cities and regions as well as the way we encounter and enjoy them.

England’s heritage is loved and cared for by millions; our world-renowned, iconic buildings, places and customs draw visitors from all corners of the world. Our heritage stimulates creativity and culture from the great engineers and architects who have shaped our surroundings, to the celebrated artists and writers who have documented the moments and feelings it invokes.

This category is inspired by the beauty, breadth, and brilliance of England’s history, the real rare and rousing sights which best describe who we are and where we’ve come from.

Historic England is the official partner of the Historic England Category. All images must be of historical significance and taken in England with an accompanying explanation of the significance.
