The Historic Environment Record throughout Somerset has been digitised and is available online. It provides comprehensive information about hundreds of historic sites and localities throughout the county based on historic and contemporary research and surveys. This is the best source of public information about the heritage sites of the county of Somerset.


We also provide an advice and guidance service to many partners:

  • Advice on archaeology and built heritage through development control and strategic planning policy.

  • Standards and guidance covering archaeological fieldwork or types of developments in Somerset.

  • Advice to landowners and others on the management of the rural historic environment through agri-environment schemes.

  • Advice on improvements to historic townscapes.

  • A range of popular and academic publications.

  • Information on archaeological projects.
