A new database allows searchers to look for castles by postcode in England . Details of England’s national heritage from protected shipwrecks to listed lamp-posts are being made easily available to the public for the first time with a new online database.
English Heritage has launched the National Heritage List for England which it claimed was “a significant milestone towards achieving better understanding and protection for heritage in this country”.
It lists all 400,000 listed buildings, parks, gardens, battlefields, shipwrecks and scheduled monuments. And for the first time, the public will be able to search by postcode, by age or by categories from coal-mines to castles.
The database launch came as English Heritage came as it announced priorities from now until 2015 in the light of a 32 per cent cut in its Government grant.
Work still going ahead include vital repairs to Kenwood House in north London and a major advice service to councils who are selling off public buildings such as town halls and libraries because of their own budget cuts.
