English Heritage spatial datasets

The English Heritage datasets used in the ArcGIS Online application are provided by Bedford Borough Council under licence from English Heritage. It is important to note that English Heritage spatial data is provided for indication purposes only. The data was captured against Ordnance Survey® digital mapping products under licence.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the depiction, the data may have originally been captured against a different edition of the Ordnance Survey® map to that currently available. Please bear this in mind when interpreting the location of the designated feature and any constraint boundary. The spatial data should never be viewed or printed at any scale larger than the scale of capture indicated in the attributes for each feature.

If you have a query as to the location of a designated monument, site or building or the extent of a specific constraint area, please contact the appropriate English Heritage Regional Office – a list is available on the website

The raw data supplied to you is ©English Heritage. English Heritage cannot accept responsibility for the accuracy of any maps or other products made by you based on this data. For general information about designations, please visit the English Heritage website

If you are undertaking a desk-based assessment, it is strongly recommend that prior to commencement of work on any site more detailed research is undertaken to include a search for records of other archaeological features potentially affected by the development. The National Monuments Record holds data on around 400,000 archaeological/historical sites recorded from fieldwork or documentary sources. NMR also hold an equivalent number of entries for listed buildings in a separate database. Local Historic Environment Records (HERs/Sites and Monuments Records) are also a key source of information. HER information is available from
