Historic environment record

One of our tasks is to maintain the Historic Environment Record (HER). This is the index of all known and recorded archaeological sites and historic environment features in the National Park. It is a repository of knowledge and an effective tool in the protection of the areas heritage.

We will be enhancing the HER in the new area of the National Park as one of the objectives agreed by the Authority and a wide range of local partner organisations in the National Park Management Plan 2019-24.

The core digital data of the HER is hosted on the Archaeology Data Service. This can be viewed by entering ‘Yorkshire Dales National Park’ in the keyword field. It can also be accessed through our own website.

The HER can also be viewed at our Bainbridge office. Please contact us at to arrange a mutually convenient time.
